Minister:(Successes against terrorists achieved through unity: Ch Nisar)

ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has said that successes against terrorists have been achieved through unity.

He was talking to media after inaugurating a program for depositing passport fee through National Bank branchless banking and mobiles here on Thursday.

The Interior Minister said incidents of terrorism in the country have gone down due to coordinated action against terrorists. He said those who are criticizing National Action Plan should not do that for points scoring.

He said terrorists are attacking soft targets like educational institutions because their backbone has been broken. He said it has been decided to disclose facts about those who are creating sensation among people on war against terrorism. He said he will give briefing to the owners of the media organizations on National Action Plan next week.

Chaudhry Nisar Ali said he would present facts about Maulana Abdul Aziz in the Senate. He urged politicians to avoid criticism for the sake of criticism on the issue of national security as the government’s policy against terrorism is very clear.

He said he himself will monitor security arrangements in Islamabad. To a question about powers to Rangers in Pakistan, Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said federal government has the authority to issue notifications about the armed forces.

He said actions against terrorists are being taken and several of them were killed in the recent past. He said steps are being taken to block Afghan SIMs in Pakistan.
