Peshawar, July 11 : The Bara operation was a futile exercise and mere eyewash simply launched to appease the Americans, former NWFP chief minister Sardar Mehtab Ahmed Khan Abbasi said here last evening while speaking to reporters.
He said his party was not taken into confidence on the operation, but they were still morally bound to support it.
Referring to the performance of the PPP-led federal government, he said that the government in four months could not resolve all the problems it was facing.
He said that majority of members of Musharraf's team, including Shaukat Aziz, had left the country and the Pakistan People's Party (PPP) was running the affairs of the country with the "assistance of the remaining members of his clique", reported The News.
The existing price-hike and lawlessness had disappointed the people, who had voted both the PPP and the PML-N to power, he said and added that the problems of the people would remain until parliament would take drastic decisions to resolve them.
