Chief of Pashtunkhwa Milli Awami Party (PkMAP), Mehmood Khan Achakzai has proposed a round-table conference of all political parties to take country out of the prevailing economic and political crisis.
Addressing a mammoth public meeting at the Ayub Stadium on the occasion of the 49th death anniversary of Abdul Samad Khan Achakzai, populary known as Khan Shaheed, on Friday, Achakzia urged all political forces to put their heads together to address issues faced by the country.
“I believe in a democratic Pakistan wherein every nationality has its identity, and due constitutional, economic, and cultural rights. We demand the unification of Pakhtuns of southwest and northwest along with all Pashtun areas to make a unified province.
“I will salute anyone and everyone if it is a judge or general, who believes in such a Pakistan,” he observed.
Achakzai also stressed that Pashtuns want peaceful co-existence with Balochs on the basis of equality in the province, calling upon the masses to give due respect and rights to their womenfolk.
If you don’t send your daughters to school how can we produce female doctors, pilots, scholars and leaders, he questioned.
He also urged the Taliban in Afghanistan to ensure women’s access to education by removing all bans and barriers in its way.
