MASTUNG: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan has called for a quickening of the pace of implementation of the National Action Plan to counter militancy.
Addressing a press conference after meeting representatives of the Balochistan Awami Party (BAP), Imran condemned the growing acts of terrorism in the country.
“The biggest damage done to Pakistan has been because we never adhered to the National Action Plan that all parties agreed to. We must implement NAP across the country on priority basis,” he said.
The PTI chief stressed the need for developing cooperation among authorities concerned to address security challenges. “Army, police, security agencies, civilian government all need to bring our security institutions on one page,” he said.
Imran expressed his concern that the recent wave of terrorism was an attempt to create an atmosphere of fear ahead of the July 25 polls. He, however, spoke against suspending election activities.
“This terrorism is to derail our stability, to create fear because enemies of Pakistan don’t want to see free and fair election.
“If we suspend election activities; it will mean a win for terrorism. So we have to fight back and continue forward. This upcoming election is a decisive one for Pakistan,” he added.
