PESHAWAR – Qaumi Watan Party (QWP) Chairman, Aftab Ahmad Khan Sherpao has said that military operation in North Waziristan Agency will further exacerbate the law and order situation, as use of force is no way to establish peace in the region.Talking to party delegations here at party secretariat, he said QWP always stressed resolving all the issues through dialogues. He said civilian governments should be given the ‘driving seat’ in the areas like Malakand division where military operations had been completed so that the law and order could be maintained. Talking about changing name and flag of the party, he said the step was taken to cover the gap being created due to lack of honest and sincere leadership in the province and to protect the rights of Pakhtuns in the 21st century’s globalised world. He also invited all the political parties to join hands and make concerted and sincere efforts for bringing back peace into the region and work together for the rehabilitation of damaged infrastructure and dwindling economy of the province in particular and the region in general.“The terrorism has wrecked havoc with our infrastructure and economy. It will take time to rehabilitate,” he said and added that it required result-oriented steps to face the prevailing challenges and steer the nation out of crises. He criticized the so-called champions of Pakhtuns rights and said they had failed to fulfill its promises they had made to the nation. He said the so-called nationalist introduced a culture of corruption and selling government jobs and failed to restore peace in the province. “If the government is true in its claim of completely restoring peace in the province then why Malala was shot and Mattani incidents are happening,” he asked.“The ANP-led provincial coalition also promised to secure net hydel profit and would exempt the province of load-shedding,” he said and added they could not reduce duration of power outages in the province let alone exemption. He said lawless, price hike, unemployment was order of the day due to flawed policies of the government despite receiving huge loans from national and international monetary institutions.“The ADP stood at Rs 6 billion when I was the chief minister. The amount has now been raised to over Rs 100 billion, but there is no improvement on the ground,” he remarked. He said the government could no more deceive the masses as they were aware and urged them to select honest and sincere leadership in next government.
