Chairing a meeting on law and order here, the prime minister lamented that the role of the provinces in the implementation of NAP had been ignored during the last four years [when PTI was in power] which led to an increase in acts of terrorism in the country.
“This role of the provinces will be restored that remained missing during the last four years,” a statement quoted him as saying.
The 20-point NAP was devised in the wake of December 2014 terrorist attack on the Army Public School in Peshawar.
Prime Minister Sharif stressed that ensuring law and order and a peaceful atmosphere in the country was a prerequisite for restoring national economy and development.
He said the entire nation was united on the anti-terrorism narrative, standing behind the armed forces and law-enforcement agencies.
He said the fight against terrorism would continue till the elimination of the menace and pledged never to compromise on Pakistan’s security and defence.
The meeting also reviewed the implementation of the steps to eliminate the sources of terror financing and relevant laws.
