Mr. PM! Good show on activating the NACTA. However, now stop thinking about ONLY PUNJAB. Punjab is not Pakistan but a part of Pakistan. Please remember this advice. Let us see how NACTA is activated and what it does under civilian control. To quote you, please remember that you have a strong 5,000 members fighting force. Salams
