ISLAMABAD: Families of the martyrs of Army Public School, Peshawar, said the promises made by the government need to be fulfilled in a just manner. The APS martyrs’ families called on Senate Deputy Chairman Saleem Mandviwalla on Tuesday at Parliament House. They said that 71 families had just one son, who lost life to that act of terrorism, and appealed to the government that a plan to support parents of all such students should be formulated. Mandviwalla assured the families of his support and said that he would do all in his power to resolve the issue. However, he said since he was not part of the executive he would require time to evaluate the matter.
