PESHAWAR: Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Pervez Khattak demanded of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif here on Monday to call an All-Party Conference on the fresh wave of terrorism in the country.
Talking to media, he said that holding another APC was need of the hour. The political and military leadership would sit together to discuss and review progress on National Action Plan, he added.
“The provincial government is implementing National Action Plan in its true spirit,” the chief minister said, adding that federal government should convene another APC to review the situation in the country.
Khattak urged the security agencies to launch a decisive operation against the terrorists immediately in the province to maintain lasting peace. He said that provincial government was ready to extend any kind of support to the forces.
The chief minister said that the entire nation including the armed forces and political leadership was united against terrorism. He said that it was time of political point scoring as all of them were suffering from the ongoing terrorism.
Khattak said that security forces in collaboration with the government should impose emergency in the province and launch search operation against terrorists. He said that action should be taken against all illegal residents of the province including Afghan refugees.
The chief minister said that the province was badly affected by the on-going terrorist activities. The UN agencies, federal government and Afghan government should fix time for repatriation of Afghan refugees. He said that Afghan refugees were a burden on the province and security condition was becoming worse owing to their presence.
