Jan Muhammad Khan Achakzai (Leader PML-N):
“We need to remember that terrorism emanates from Afghanistan. The people who attacked us have their sanctuaries, hideouts and support in Afghanistan. The handlers and perpetrators of terrorists must be taken care of. We should tell Afghanistan that those sanctuaries should not be used against Pakistan. We should teach the terrorists lessons diplomatically and at tactical level as well. There are some short term and long term solutions to these problems. We should engage China, Russia and Iran diplomatically to take care of these challenges. Also, we should manage the western border and sanctuaries across the border must be taken care of. We need more energy to curb this terrorism. Terrorism is being used as an instrument to destabilize Pakistan."
Isphanyar Bhandara(Leader PML-N):
“Whatever has happened today is condemnable, but we should not lose our resolve. We should stand by our armed forces, military courts must be re-established and we should not politicize this issue. We should strengthen government arms against terrorism. We need to improve unit level intelligence. We need to keep eye and ear on ground. The enemy has tried to exploit our weak areas. When we compare Pakistan with America, literacy rate is high and poverty level is very low in America. We need to keep our economic engine going to meet this challenge."
