PESHAWAR: Qaumi Watan Party (QWP) chief Aftab Sherpao on Saturday said that confrontation between state institutions would be detrimental to the country’s future and especially to the rights of Pakhtuns.

He was speaking at his party’s core committee meeting at Watan Kor here. Sherpao regretted that non-issues were being raised and the problems facing the people in the country had been put on the backburner. He deplored that justice was not being provided to the families of the slain tribal youth Naqeebullah and Ahmad Shah. He said the killings of the Pakhtun tribesmen had added to the sense of deprivation among the Pakhtuns at large.

The QWP leader lamented that confrontation between the government and opposition would undermine the country. He said that the prevailing political circumstances would hamper the development of Pakistan. He said that the merger of the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (Fata) and other key developments pertaining to the provinces had been put on the backburner. Aftab Sherpao said the political conflicts threatened the future of the country as clouds of uncertainty were hovering over the national horizon.
