ISLAMABAD: Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Syed Khursheed Ahmed Shah on Friday said the prime minister should soon make a decision and people will back all measures, including an operation against terrorists.

He said those wounded by terrorists demand leaders, not rulers. He said the entire nation is united to fight terrorism and the time has arrived to take a final decision to wipe out the elements taking the lives of innocent people. "We are thinking why our security personnel and civilians are being targeted. We must sit together and the government has to take a final decision against the terrorists," he said while talking to reporters here at the Combined Military Hospital (CMH) where he inquired about health of the injured of Bannu and RA Bazaar terrorism incidents.

"The nation is ready to face a tough situation while rulers are still confused," he added. Former federal ministers Qamar Zaman Kaira and Nazar Muhammad Gondal also accompanied him. He said the leadership of Pakistan People's Party (PPP) has categorically stated that it would extend all-out support to the government in its decision whatsoever it takes to tackle terrorists carrying out subversive activities in various parts of the country.

Shah said the PPP would not leave the government alone in any circumstances for the cause of national sovereignty and democracy for which it rendered great sacrifices. He said the PPP in its tenure had purged Swat and Malakand divisions of terrorists after taking parliament into confidence but it is not the time for point scoring. He said the writ of the state must be maintained at all cost.
