QWP fully supports Govt initiative for dialogue with Taliban: Sherpao

02 February, 2014

PESHAWAR: Chairman, Qaumi Watan Party (QWP), Aftab Ahmad Khan Sherpao has said that his party fully supported the peace initiative taken by the federal government to restore peace.

"We will extend all-out support to the federal government to contribute towards bringing peace and stability," he said this at a public meeting held in connection with the forthcoming death anniversary of Shaheed Hayat Mohammad Khan Sherpao at Sherpao village in Charsadda district on Saturday.

Aftab Sherpao urged all the political parties to back the dialogue process to bring peace to the country particularly Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. "All the political parties should rise above the political divide and support the peace initiative," he said.

He said peace was a prerequisite for development therefore no effort should be spared to achieve it in order to put the country on the path to progress.

The QWP leader said the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI)-led provincial government had failed to address the problems being faced by the people. He said the provincial government was just issuing press statements and was doing nothing to give relief to the masses.

Aftab Sherpao said the recent report of the World Health Organisation (WHO) declaring Peshawar the "largest reservoir" of poliovirus in the world was a charge-sheet against the PTI rulers.

"The PTI has been unable to deliver on its pledges made during the campaign for the 2013 general election," he maintained. He said the provincial government had not taken any initiative to win the rights of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. He said target killings, extortion and kidnapping for ransom had made life miserable for the people. He said the downtrodden segments of the society were running from pillar to post to arrange a two time meal for their children.

On the occasion, he paid glowing tributes to the services of Shaheed Hayat Mohammad Khan Sherpao for the cause of democracy and rule of law. He said the Shaheed leader laid down his life for a noble cause and the QWP workers would take his mission forward.

End.
