Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has decided to hold consultations with various political parties in regard of the Operation in North Waziristan and other important matters. This is a good move and shows his commitment to taking all parties on board regarding national security issues. All parliamentary leaders would be invited to a multi-party meeting to exchange views on issues such as the IDP’s and North Waziristan operation. This meeting will allow consensus on national priorities and if there are any grievances they can be addressed cordially. It is imperative for all parties to show a united front at this crucial time.

ZAHRAH KHAN,
