KALLAR SYEDAN: Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has said the aim of terrorists was to paralyse and divide the nation.
“We need to understand that terrorist attacks are carried out to divide and break the resolve of the nation. I am not speaking in support of the chief ministers but nowhere in the world are resignations demanded on the basis of terrorist attacks,” Nisar said while talking to media here on Saturday.
Nisar said when such demands are made after terrorist attacks it fulfills the purpose of terrorists. He said that terrorists were indulging in sectarian killings to divide the nation and appealed the people to collectively confront the enemies of the country.
The interior minister spoke of the resolve to fight till the last terrorist was eliminated. He added that the war against terrorism would be won at all costs. He emphasised that it was the responsibility of the entire nation and political parties to give a clear message of unity to defeat terrorists.
Addressing PML-N workers in Kalar Syedan on Saturday, the Interior Minister said the government and the armed forces have tightened the nose around terrorists and vowed that war against terrorism would continue till last terrorists is eliminated. The Minister said that the nation should not be disappointed at incidents of terrorism and assured that the government would fight them with more determination.
Nisar said that the armed forces have paralyzed the banned outfits which is why they are targeting civilians. He said that terrorists are now finding easy targets which depicts their desperation. The country would meet the challenge and rise above the issues, he added.
Without naming the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), the interior minister said there was a party which was not political but was rather a fan club.
Nisar said that abusive politics has no future in country and the PML-N was working to unite the political forces.
He said he listens to the complaints of people setting aside political considerations and welfare of the people of the area was his foremost priority. He said media was playing an important role in carrying out welfare projects in Kalar Syedan and other areas of his constituency. He said immediate action is taken on newspaper reports about any problem in Kalar Syedan. He said the development work in Kalar Syedan carried out in the last two years has no precedence.
