Posted on 10 months ago
SAKHKOT: Senior Provincial Minister Bashir Ahmad Bilour said on Monday that they were not ready to hold negotiations with militants at any condition.
This he said while addressing a gathering in which Provincial Minister for Forests Wajid Ali Khan, Minister of Livestock Haji Hedayat Ullah Khan, Coordinative Secretary Malik Ghulam Mustafa Khan, president of ANP, Malakand, Muhammad Soaib Khan, General Secretary Shafi Ullah and many others participated.
He said that people who were demanding to hold negotiations with militants are not sincere with Pakistan. He asked the terrorists that either they would live in this region or the followers of the philosophy of Bacha Khan "Adam-e-Tashadoud". He also said that their government had given many chances to militants, for maintaining peace in area but they were taking their leniency as its weakness.
Bilour said that Jamat-e-Islami had poled their votes against ANP during election 2008 despite their boycott and the position of JI had been clarified to people in the previous local elections. Similarly he blamed MMA government and said that militancy had been erupted in the province due to their poor policies. "Amir Muqqam is not a stable leader and he was trying his best to come in power through back door" he added.
The Minister maintained that their party was running government with success despite the critical situation of peace and other problems in the province. He further said they had fulfilled all promises made with people during election 2008, adding that their government had been given pen in the hands of youth instead of Klashankive Culture and established 16 universities and hundreds of schools and colleges in the different areas of province. He stated that it was an honour for their party to establish peace and complete many developments projects despite the worse situation.
He said that their government had received 2.3 billion rupees royalty of electricity from the federal government this year while it had been increased from two billion to 23 billion annually.
He claimed that their party had given sacrifices to restore peace in the area and had given identity to province with the name of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
