Referring to the elections of chairmen Standing Committees in Punjab, Sherry Rehman said that the development has proved that every issue could be solved through negotiations. To a query, the minister said that the Swat situation should be taken seriously, adding that the opposition should forward practicable suggestions instead of making demands like convening meetings of provincial and federal cabinets in the restive valley. While responding to another question, Sherry Rehman said that the report on Mumbai incident was with the Law Ministry, which she said, would be presented soon. She also informed that the Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani intended to constitute a committee for bringing a consensus bill to repeal the 17th amendment of the constitution.

The Minister said that the democratic government felt no threat of the Long March adding that peaceful agitation was a right of the lawyers. She said that the government would whole-heartedly allow the Long March, as, she said, it did in the past. However, she said, necessary security arrangements would be made to avoid any untoward incident. She said that the government was making efforts for bringing down inflation and narrowing down the trade deficit on priority basis. The government would go for permanent solutions to the problems as, she said, the ad hoc policies could deliver nothing good to the nation. She said that the government was also making efforts for restoring the process of composite dialogue with India to normalize the tension emerged out of the Mumbai carnage. She urged the political forces to strengthen the government in its efforts to restore peace in Swat. She said that destruction of schools in the Valley was not acceptable as the education was a basic right of each individual. Responding to a question, Sherry Rehman said that PPP had rendered more sacrifices than any party else in terms of sweat and blood for the cause of democracy in the country. She said that PPP had a pro-labourers agenda, therefore, she added, elite class of the country always created hurdles in way of its government.
