Pakhtunkhwa Awami Party chief and former National Assembly member Mehmood Khan Achakzai, while addressing a press conference at his residence in Quetta, said that Pakistan’s problem is not Imran Khan but lack of constitutional rule, adding that the country could not function unless the constitution and law prevailed.
The people of Pakistan are worried about a change in the policy along the Pak-Afghan border. Achakzai has said that Pashtun and Baloch tribes have inhabited Pak-Afghan border for centuries. People have been living on the border without passports for a long time, but now, the policy is changing, which is creating trouble for Chaman and other border areas. They have been moving between the two countries without a passport for centuries. The new policy will deprive them of their livelihoods and there could be a revolt. The country may go to a civil war. “If Pakistan cooperates with Afghanistan, the passport system between the two countries could be postponed for the next ten years”, Achakzai added.
Pakistan belongs to us as much as it belongs to a general and a judge, and this country cannot function unless the constitution and law prevail. Chairman Pakhtunkhwa Awami party said that corruption is the product of our own institutions. He also said that we need a separate Pashtun unit until the Pashtun and Baloch problem is not solved, the country will not develop. Baloch is sitting in the assembly by force, and we want a united Pashtuns assembly.
