Manan Mandokhail :

QUETTA: Chairman Pashtoonkhwa Milli Awami Party (PKMAP), Mehmood Khan Achakzai on Thursday said his party was striving for a democratic Pakistan. “We will continue our struggle for a democratic Pakistan and for the rights of Pashtoons”, he told a public meeting in Quetta’s Hockey Ground.

The party observed the 48th death anniversary of Khan Shaheed Abdul Samad Khan Achakzai. Nawab Ayaz Khan Jogezai, Abdul Rahim Ziaratwal, and other leaders also addressed the public meeting. The flags-waving supporters of PKMAP also chanted full-throated slogans.

“Our party has never compromised over the rights of small nationalities living in Pakistan”, he said, adding that all nationalities stand for equal rights in the country. Mr. Achakzai urged all political parties to put their heads together and get the country out of a prevailing political and economic crisis. He reiterated that supremacy of parliament and constitution offers a panacea to all ills of the country.

The PKAMP Chairman announced the holding of the party’s congress/elections in the month of January 2022. He said the party’s structure would be evolved and elections would be held within the party.

Addressing the public meeting, Nawab Jogezai, Rahim Ziaratwal and other party leaders paid a rich tribute to Khan Abdul Samad Khan Achakzai. They said the founder of the PKMAP had spent precious days of life behind the bars during his struggle for what they called the acquisition of usurped rights of Pashtoons and other nationalities in the country.
