F.P. Report

PESHAWAR: Qaumi Watan Party (QWP) Chairman Aftab Ahmad Khan Sherpao on Sunday asked the provincial government to lift curfew in North Waziristan immediately as it was adding to the problems of the local population.

In a statement issued from Watan Kor, he said that the people in North Waziristan could not do their daily chores due to the imposition of the curfew and were facing a host of problems.

He criticised the provincial government for acting like a silent spectator, saying that it should play its role in lifting the curfew as it has added to the miseries of the people in North Waziristan.

Aftab Sherpao said that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government had failed on all fronts as the slogan of change was a ploy to reach the corridors of power.

He said that the PTI leaders did not have the ability and competence to steer the country out of the prevailing crisis-like situation. He said the country had become like a rudderless ship which lacked direction.

The QWP leader said that the government was victimizing its political opponents in the name of accountability.
