Speaking to an anti-US rally in Peshawar, he said that the government should act upon the recommendations of the APC and distance itself from US policies.
Qazi Hussain said that the whole nation will come out on to the streets if an operation were launched Waziristan. He said that the government had pledged during the APC that it will not launch any new military operations in Waziristan but after the recent visit of Hilary Clinton, it seems as if the government was thinking otherwise.
