Isn't this guy's party the ruling party in KP? Aren't they the ones who needed to provide food, clothing, security and shelter to their province? Shouldn't he first make KP a model state before going for a Naya Pakistan? What does KP stand for now? Its just rubbish that this guy is treated as the next big thing. Quite appalled that when an incident like this has happened, he has done nothing to call on the ministers for steps to protect lives atleast children. Shame on you mate!!!
