He was made Chairman of the Kashmir Committee in the Second government of Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto.

The speaker of the National assembly appointed him the Leader of the Opposition between 2004-2007, but the only reason he got the position was because of the absence of two main political parties from the election scene; the PPP and PML-N.

He was elected MNA from Bannu in the 2008 general elections and is currently Chairman of Kashmir Affairs Committee of the National Assembly of Pakistan.
