Prime Minister's speech... By Tajammal

31 January, 2014

The speech delivered by the prime minister (PM) before the National Assembly on terrorism was by and large satisfactory. He was confident and knew that a few days of bombardments on the Taliban hideouts in North Waziristan have brought them to their senses. However, the committee formed to negotiate peace with the Taliban is flawed. The choice of the members of the committee suggests as if the government has made a stopgap arrangement to silence the opposition and those who have been demanding of the government to announce its policy on terrorism.

It would have been much better if a high level committee, including politicians, technocrats, diplomats and academicians was formed for the purpose. This committee should have been given full authority for conducting peace talks with the Taliban, with a one month timeframe for initial findings. The PM then would have presented those findings to parliament for further advancement. Only such an arrangement, result-oriented, time-bound and objective, could produce results. Needless to say the entire country is fed up of both terrorism and rthe government's constant manoeuvring on the issue.
