ISLAMABAD - Chief of his own faction of Pakistan Peoples Party, Aftab Ahmad Khan Sherpao, has said that both the ruling coalition and opposition parties are not playing their due role and called upon political elite to sit together and evolve a strategy to steer the country out of the prevailing crises. He expressed these views at Meet the Press Programme at National Press Club here on Friday afternoon. Responding to journalists questions Aftab Ahmad Khan Sherpao, who was interior minister in the previous government, said that the prevailing anarchy like situation in the country had made the life of common man impossible and he was losing faith in the system. He said that ruling Pakistan Peoples Party was itself on the destruction course and pushing the things towards institutional clash while its coalition partners were at daggers drawn and fighting with one another over petty interests. On the other hand the opposition had also failed to play its due role and the major political parties in opposition were trapped in the state of indecision and not playing their role of keeping a vigil on the working of the government due to which the government had de-tracked from its actual role of service to masses and to bring positive changes in their lives. He further said that due to the failures of government the menace of terrorism was growing by every passing day, prices of essential commodities were skyrocketing, target killing was on rise and unemployment had touched unprecedented level, due to which the life of common people had become extremely difficult. He said that in these circumstances the people have started losing their faith in the system and asked all the political forces to forge unity to pull the country out of this chaotic situation and at least put it on the right track, as the problems facing the country could not be resolved overnight. About the worst conditions in his home province Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Aftab Ahmad Khan Sherpao said that the people in the province had been in a state of war since 9/11 and for past three years the Armed Forces and other law enforcement agencies were launching military operations in various parts of the province. To the deteriorating law and order situation the economy of the province was in tatters where over 450 school buildings were raised to ground, well over 300 industrial units were closed with vast majority of people in the province slipping down the poverty line.
