ISLAMABAD (Staff Report) – Federal Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has said that recent sporadic and desperate acts of terrorism should not be portrayed as failure of National Action Plan against terrorism.

Addressing a ceremony at National Defense University in Islamabad, he said the National Action Plan was chalked out with the consensus of all political parties and it has helped improve security situation in the country.

The Minister said those spreading despondency and pessimism after every incident of terrorism are playing into the hands of enemies.

He said some political parties and individuals are hell bent on scoring political points at the cost of national interest.

Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan stressed the need to reiterate a firm resolve to defeat terrorists at all costs instead of creating impression of weakness.

Interior Minister said the elements spreading pessimism and cynicism should remember that the graph of terrorism in the country is the lowest today since 2006.

He said previous governments did not formulate any internal security policy despite terrorism incidents in the country.
