RAWALPINDI: A day after the government finalised a national action plan against terrorists, Chief of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif on Thursday directed concerned authorities within the army and intelligence agencies to effectively implement the plan.

According to the Inter-Services Public Relations statement, the army chief chaired a high level security meeting of army and intelligence agencies’ officials at General Headquarters in Rawalpindi on Thursday. He reviewed all activities which will be undertaken as part of the national action plan. He directed that it should be effectively and speedily implemented.

After a marathon meeting, the country’s political leadership had on Wednesday approved a comprehensive plan of action against terrorism in a move described by Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif as a ‘defining moment’ in the fight against terrorism.

The 20-point National Action Plan that envisages establishment of special courts for speedy trial of terror suspects and a crackdown on jihadi and sectarian outfits was announced by the prime minister in a televised address to the nation late Wednesday night following a daylong meeting of the heads of all parliamentary parties at the Prime Minister House.

While reiterating his unequivocal resolve to eliminate terrorism, the army chief paid tribute to political leadership of the country for their resolve to eradicate the menace of terrorism from the country through reforms and administrative measures.

General Raheel expressed the hope that, in keeping with confidence and trust of the nation, army and political leadership can transform this consensus into practical actions on the ground.

We will lose this war even before it begins. No vehicle can reach its destination which has two drivers, steering it at the same time. This is happening in Pakistan before us. Army should impose martial law and take full responsibility or let the government to take complete responsibility and sit behind. Maligning politicians and praising army should be stopped immediately. No one has won any war yet.
