ISLAMABAD - Opposition leaders of various parliamentary parties in the National Assembly Saturday warned the PML-N of serious political repercussions if it failed to resolve two major issues, including energy crisis and US drone attacks.

They made these views while talking to the media outside the Parliament House after taking oath. Chief of his Awami Muslim League (AML) Sheikh Rashid said that public had given vote to newly elected MPs to solve their problem and if they failed to do so than they would meet the same fate as the previous government.

Sheikh Rashid said that that poor people of Pakistan had mandated the newly elected members to put an end to menace of loadshedding and poverty. “People are suffering from disappointment and restlessness,” he added.

He maintained that the public wanted a change and end to their problems and if this government failed to deliver on its promises than they would have to look towards somewhere else.

He said he would vote in favour of PTI candidate for the Prime Minister office Makhdoom Javed Hashmi and would side with truth in the parliament to expose the fraudsters.

Ameer Haider Khan Hoti, the lone ANP MP in the National Assembly, said that two major problems, the drone and energy crises, were the major problems the new government would have to resolve.  

Pakistan People’s Party Parliamentarian Chairman Makhdoom Amin Fahim Saturday said that peaceful transition of power would strengthen democracy in the country, adding that the tradition of power should continue in the future as well.

He said that he would help promote his party’s policy of reconciliation and being the democratic people they would not hesitate from dialogue to evolve consensus on the issues of public importance. PPP central leader Syed Khurshid Shah the likely Leader of Opposition said that his party would cooperate with the new government on issue to issue basis and would support the good deeds of the government.

He warned that his PPP would resist tooth and nail if PML-N government started taking revenge under the garb of accountability, adding that full opportunity would be provided to the government to work and no hindrances would be created in its way.

He reminded that Mian Nawaz Sahrif who has been criticising the PPP government on its failure in stopping the US drone strikes in Pakistan was today facing as the major challenge on drones as well as the energy crisis. “We should go for dialogue with US to stop drone strikes,” he advised.

Chief of Pakhtunkhawa Milli Awami Party (PMAP) Mehmood Khan Achakzai was of the view that people should be apprised of the causes behind the US drone strikes.

“The people will have to be informed about the causes behind the drone attacks. There is no need to conceal facts from the masses. There is some reason behind in continuation of the US drone attacks,” he added. “We believe in democracy. We should explore the solution to national problems by staying within democracy,” he added.
