ISLAMABAD - Expressing grave concern over the growing drone attacks in tribal areas of the country chief of his own faction of Pakistan Peoples Party Aftab Ahmad Khan Sherpao called upon the political and military leadership to sit together and review the counter-terror policy, besides readjusting it in the light of the national interests. Talking to The Nation Aftab Ahmad Khan Sherpao said that now the drone attacks were turning out to be more counterproductive and the Government of Pakistan must take up this issue with America seriously. He added that he along with other Parliamentarians would demand of the Government to immediately call the meeting of Parliamentary Committee on National Security so that they could reflect upon the flaws in the countrys counter-terror policy and to help make it homegrown to protect the rights and interests of the nation. To a question about the growing US pressure on Pakistan to go for hot pursuit against militants in North Waziristan, Sherpao said that Pakistan Army could not afford to open front against militants in North Waziristan when they were already entangled with militants in South Waziristan and other parts of Fata. He further said that technically for another three to four months Army could not go into North Waziristan due to harsh weather and even after that the Government should have to keep in considerations ground realities before launching a military operation in North Waziristan. Criticising the Government for completely toeing the US anti-terror policy Aftab Ahmad Khan Sherpao said that they could not blindly support drone attacks in Pakistani territory, as due to the civilian casualties in these attacks the people were turning against the Government and making the task of the law enforcement agencies to maintain peace more and more difficult. Explaining his point of view Sherpao said that the recent drone attacks in Bara Agency hitting some elements of Mangal Bagh had united the three main groups operating in the area against the law enforcement agencies, hence making the task of maintaining peace in these areas next to Peshawar difficult. He warned if these drone attacks continued unabated and were stretched to the settled areas of Bara Agency and Teera then the public outrage against it would grow only to add to the difficulties of law enforcement agencies. To another question he said that in the recent past there were rumours around that American drones attacks might stretch to some areas in Balochistan and in case this would happen, then things would slip out of the control of the rulers. He suggested that it was high time for the military and political leadership of the country to sit together to redefine the countrys counter-terror policy in the light of the twists and turns the international players had taken on the subject, especially the mounting American pressure on Pakistan to launch operation in North Waziristan.
