Reign in the establishment or go to hell!


Demanding rectification of the “establishment”, Mahmood Khan Achakzai said that if the establishment was not reformed, the government and its salary could “go to hell.”

Achakzai sought the withdrawal of the army from FATA and claimed that Pakistan was interfering in Afghanistan. The Pakhtoonkhwa Awami Milli Party (PkMAP) chief blamed the armed forces for allowing militants in FATA and said the policy of good and bad Taliban needed to be stopped.

“The US government is not stupid in spending millions on drone strikes. It is true that we are interfering in Afghanistan. The entire world has become our enemy and the allegations levelled on us by the US government have proven to be true. Osama was caught from near the SSB Training Academy; we sold the nuclear bomb and neighbouring countries, including China are not happy with us,” he said

Achakzai added that he would quit the assembly if the “establishment” was not reined in three years.

The PkMAP leader was of the view that Colonel Imam, former intelligence officer, had confessed to training to 95,000 people.

“We need to keep US in confidence for talks with Taliban and it should be a part of the dialogue,” Achakzai further said.

“As long as dialogue continues, the drone attacks should remain suspended,” he stressed.

However, on a point of order, objected by a lawmaker, Achakzai took back his words “go to hell” for assembly.

The minister said that a high-level meeting has been convened on June 20 and a security policy would be announced on the very next day. He assured the House that Jinnah’s residency would be renovated within three to four months.
