LAHORE: Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting, Qamar Zaman Kaira has said that the chief of TNSM, Maulana Sufi Muhammad must now guarantee peace in Swat.
Talking to journalists at Al-Hamra Hall here on Tuesday, he stressed upon Maulana Sufi to honour the peace agreement and avoid prolonging the demands list.
To a question, he said the NWFP government had signed the Swat peace accord, however, the federal government seconded it with the support of more than 300 MNAs.
Now a bill in this regard has been presented in the Senate for discussion to bring improvements, if any, in the Nizam-e-Adl Regulation, he responded to a questioner.
Kaira observed that Swat peace accord should not be deemed as victory or defeat of anyone. To another question, he said, PPP would announce its decision whether to join Punjab government within a few days.
