ISLAMABAD - Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Monday said that his party is supporting military action against terrorists in North Waziristan.

Speaking to media persons outside the National Assembly, he lamented that Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government, which would bear the burden of IDPs was not consulted prior to the action.

“We must stand behind the Army now as operation has already begun,” he stressed. “We pray that operation is successful and peace is restored.“

“I and Chief Minister Pervaiz Khattak came to know about the operation through TV. We were not taken into confidence,” he said.

The PTI chief said that Nawaz Sharif should show have announced the launching of military operation, not Army.

He maintained that government should negotiate with groups, who are still willing for peaceful settlement.

“Have we thought about 7000, 000 people residing in North Waziristan? Where will they go during the bombing?” he questioned.

The PTI chief said that government should take the political parties on board about the post-operation scenario.
