The federal government cannot start an operation in Punjab without the permission of the provincial government, stated Senior Advisor to Punjab Chief Minister Zulifiqar Khosa on Sunday.
Talking to Express, Khosa said that an operation was started in the tribal areas because the writ of the government was challenged, but Punjab is not facing such problems.
He said all the militants that have been arrested in Punjab, have confessed that they got training in FATA.
Khosa said that anti terrorist training has become a part of the training of Punjab police and they have been provided with modern equipment, he also said that there are checkpoints at every entry point in Punjab but it is impossible to check every vehicle.
