Khursheed demands immediate decision on talks with Taliban


Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Syed Khursheed Shah on Friday condemned the attack on a government employees’ bus in Peshawar and asked the government to immediately take a decision for or against dialogue with the Taliban.

In a statement, the opposition leader said it was the foremost duty of the state to protect life and property of the citizens.

He expressed grave concern over continued acts of terrorism in Peshawar, saying no religion allowed killings of people and the state must fulfill its responsibility.

He said there should be no delay in implementation of the decisions taken in the all-parties conference, as the nation could not afford terrorism for an indefinite period.

He demanded compensation and adequate treatment for the deceased and injured and action against those involved in the heinous act.
