Peshawar: Pasban Pakistan President Altaf Shakoor has said that the nation needs a new brave leadership which can steer it clear from the crisis and set it on the path of progress and prosperity.
Addressing a big convention of Pasban at the Tehsil Hall here on Wednesday, he said the wrong policies of rulers, politicians and generals have snatched joys from the people of Khyber-Pakhtunkhawa province and harmed the whole country including Peshawar. He said Pasban is showing the oppressed people the path of a real change. He said Pasban would give the country able, honest, dedicated and brave leadership. He said we would introduce such a leadership in local government institutions which would develop their towns, villages and localities and make the country a peaceful place to live. He said we would introduce a new culture of solving problems of people at their doorsteps.
Altaf Shakoor said the movement of Pasban would come from every locality and every town if Dr Aafia Siddiqui was not brought home, drone attacks not stopped and price hike, joblessness and terrorism not ended. He said this movement would wash away this system based on injustice. He said the America and its local slaves were responsible for the problems faced by the nation and country today.
Pasban central vice president Hafiz Illyas Qureshi, deputy general secretary Abdul Hakim Quaid, divisional president Haji Lal Khan, district president Muhammad Khan, district patron-in-chief Bahadur Khan, Rambel Khan, Ibrahim Qureshi, Faqir Gul Awan, Shaikh Naseemullah, Muhammad Yusuf, Hmroz Khan, Hussain Aajiz, Zulfiqar Ahmed, Akhtar Gul, Tariq Khan, Zarbat Khan, Abid Khan, Haiwad Khan, Niamatullah, Gul Muhammad and others also spoke.
Earlier, when Altaf Shakoor reached Hashtnagri locality of Peshawar, he was given a warm welcome. Speaking on the occasion, the Pasban leader said the nature has bestowed the KpK province with huge mineral and agricultural resources. It is rich in oil and gas, but the corrupt rulers, bureaucrats, politicians and generals have looted and plundered this national wealth.
He said the people are now bored to tears with the same electoral or martial law farce after every five or 10 years. He said now the Pasban would provide them alternate brave and patriotic leadership. He said today is the X-mass Day but the continued drone attacks show the America has forgotten the teachings of Hazrat Essa (A.S) and made this world a living hell. He said today is also the birthday anniversary of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah but the corrupt civil and military establishment has also shattered the dreams of the father of the nation to make Pakistan an Islamic welfare state. He said the Quaid-e-Azam had formed this country for the poor masses, so that they could earn their livelihood with peace and dignity.
