ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan Wednesday said that National Action Plan (NAP) against terrorism was the agenda of Pakistan's integrity, security and there should be no politics over it.

Speaking at the upper house of the parliament, Nisar said as a result of NAP, remarkable improvement had been witnessed in the security situation and for the first time there was decline in suicide attacks, abductions and attacks on Law Enforcement Agencies.

He, however, added that a lot more had to be done for complete eradication of terrorism from the country.

The interior minister was responding to various questions of Senators in the Upper House of Parliament regarding implementation of National Action Plan (NAP) during the last one year.

He said implementation of National Action Plan (NAP) was a shared responsibility as 10 out of 20 points related to provinces, eight to various ministries and others with the military and the intelligence agencies.

Nisar said there was satisfactory progress on 15 points and slow on the remaining five, adding that removing the degeneration of the last 20 to 25 years would take some time.

The minister said there were 20,000 students in both registered and unregistered seminaries of the federal capital. In the past, he said, seminaries were established even on green belts but the present government has not allowed construction of any seminary without proper permission.

He said dialogue process was started with Taliban under a strategy formulated in consultation with military and political leadership.

Nisar said following the failure of dialogue, operation Zarb-e-Azb had been launched against terrorists with consensus of military and civilian leadership. He, however, said that a military operation alone could not rectify the situation and the ministry has formed a policy in this regard.

In coordination with the provincial governments, he said, a lot of big acts of terrorism were pre-empted, adding that during the last one year 6,500 intelligence based operations were conducted. –APP
