ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif has expressed his serious concerns over the resurgence of terrorist elements especially in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK).
Speaking at a meeting of the Federal Cabinet in Islamabad on Wednesday, he pointed out that the province had been given Rs 417 billion since 2010 to improve its counter terrorism capability.
It was the right of the KPK but the question arises as to where that amount was spent.

Being appreciative of the sacrifices rendered by the people of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in the war on terrorism, the prime minister said that the KPK has remained our front-line province in this war and its sacrifices will always be remembered in the history.
In addition, he expressed the resolve to overcome the menace of terrorism with collective efforts and wisdom. He said that that if immediate and effective steps were not taken, the despicable incidents might spread to other parts of the Country.
Shahbaz Sharif recalled that the defeat was inflicted on the terrorist elements through Radd-ul-Fasaad and Zarb-e-Azb operations because of which peace was restored in the Country.
The prime minister also said that people belonging to different walks of life including politicians rendered their lives in the war against this menace. However, the resurfacing of the terrorist elements is a matter of concern.
