Central President of the Awami National Party (ANP) Senator Aimal Wali Khan has said that once again, the Taliban are poised to take control of the entire Malakand region.

A large force has been prepared in Afghanistan’s Nuristan province for the capture of Malakand, he said, adding that currently, the southern part of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) has been completely under the TTP, and soon they are going to extend their control to northern parts.

The new government in K-P will then be a coalition of the TTP and the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).

While speaking to the media in Wali Bagh Charsadda, Wali noted that the ANP has been advocating for the Pashtun rights since day one. Those in government should take practical steps instead of just raising their voices.

If Chief Minister Ali Amin Gandapur sincerely raises the voice for Pashtun rights, the ANP will support him. However, the role of the chief minister is like an actor. Giving permission for 12-hour load shedding to PESCO will not solve anything. I will raise all issues concerning Pashtuns in the Senate, including electricity load shedding.

He maintained that it is regrettable that it is not the federation but the security forces that have suppressed our resources. In the Senate, issues of Balochistan, Sindh, and southern Punjab will also be highlighted. 

Attacks are taking place on universities in K-P. Eight universities in the province are operating without vice chancellors. According to IMF’s diktat, no new education institution can be opened in Pakistan.

He said that the future of K-P is very bleak. No power can stop the fire of terrorism on the borders. ANP has made many sacrifices for the eradication of terrorism. 

He went on to say that TTP men are patrolling regularly in the southern districts without inviting attention.

The TTP has been brought back under a plan. Forty thousand terrorists have been brought back from Afghanistan to Pakistan. Imran Khan, former Chief Minister Mehmood Khan and Barrister Saif are involved in bringing terrorists back to Pakistan.

These people are facilitators of terrorists. 

The ANP president said that under the National Action Plan, the punishment for the facilitators is hanging.

To make America happy and to steal more wealth, the nation is being pushed into the fire of terrorism. Pakistan’s budget comes prepared from America.

Parliamentarians come to the parliament riding on the shoulders of the army, whose thoughts are not free.

The thinking of such people could not be free. He said that the Constitution and the law have no status for the powerful. ANP is struggling to establish supremacy of the constitution and ensure that institutions work within their jurisdiction.

In future, JUI and ANP will be on the same page.
