Maulvi Sharif promises to help govt
PESHAWAR: Maulvi Sharif, who was wanted by the government and surrendered himself to the authorities unconditionally a few weeks ago, met NWFP Governor Syed Iftikhar Hussain Shah at the Governor’s House on Tuesday, assuring him of his full cooperation in military operations in Wana.
Maulvi Sharif, who belongs to Ahmedzai Wazir tribe of South Waziristan, warmly embraced and shook hands with the governor.
He assured Mr Shah of his loyalty to Pakistan and the government, saying he would fully support government policies for the integrity, solidarity and defence of the country. Maulvi Sharif also assured the governor that he would honour all agreements with the government and no foreign militants would be given shelter in Wana areas.
The governor congratulated Maulvi Sharif on making the “wise decision” to cooperate with the government. He said tribal people and their interests were dear to the government. Shah hoped Wana’s Ahmedzai Wazir tribes would continue cooperating with the administration and honour all agreements made with the government.
