Bilawal calls on govt to ‘abandon ties with extremist groups’

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari Saturday called on the Nawaz-government to ‘abandon ties with militant and extremist groups’, bemoaning that the National Action Plan (NAP) could not be implemented because of it, ARY News reported.

He expressed these views while meeting a delegation of party workers from Malakand, Dera Ismail Khan and Hazara Division, and representatives of Peoples Doctors Forum in Islamabad.

Bilawal said that his party condemns Nawaz-government for not implementing the NAP.

“It was said in the NAP that reforms will be introduced in Fata, but this was not done, while the banned outfits are still operating under new names,” he lamented.

He also said that as per rules the premier heads the Board of Directors of National Counter Terrorism Authority (Nacta) and it is supposed to meet every three months, but unfortunately not a single meeting was convened in past one year.

He hoped that Peoples Party will again emerge as country’s most popular political party.

Hailing the sacrifices of people of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) against terrorism and extremism, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that he will soon visit the province to meet party workers and general public.
