"I will play [a] forceful role in parliament. Shifting power to the people is [a] must for the sake of economic growth. We had devolved powers at grass root level by conducting local body elections. Our party is continuously trying to resolve the problems of people within our limited resources, Karachi operation was not a joke," he added.
He criticised the government for its failure in implementing the National Action Plan (NAP).
"[The] Federal government has totally failed in the enforcement of NAP. Our party had played its role to develop a consensus on NAP," he remarked.
He added, "Our party had done more work for public interest than any other party in the country."
Talking about the Trump government, he said the new US government is passing through initial stages and Trump's anti-Muslim orders will not succeed. He also reiterated his party's commitment towards the Kashmir cause. He assured the Kashmiris that every kind of moral and diplomatic support for their legitimate right to self-determination would be continued.
