ISLAMABD, Feb 04 ( Alliance News): Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid has dismissed the the impression that the government in talks with the banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), saying that if anyone took up arms, they would be be dealt with full power of the state.
Talking to media in Islamabad, Sheikh Rashid, quoting the Pak-Afghan border, said that an area of 20 km remains for the fence.
He said that Ashraf Ghani is not there but his followers India and RAW are there, which does not miss any opportunity to harm Pakistan.
He said that he was trying his best to solve the problem of law and order in Pakistan but he hoped that it would improve.
To a question, he said that political people should be talked to in a political manner but whoever takes up arms should be dealt with by force and whatever kind of opposition force there is.
He said that our aim is to bring all within the ambit of constitution and law but if anyone is attacking the integrity of the country, Pak army or civil forces then we have to give an answer.
Sheikh Rashid said that BNA is not such a big force, it is necessary to form BNA by involving two institutions but if anyone thinks that BNA is a military or political force then it is.
“Our talks with the Taliban are very good and we have very good relations, but there are no talks with the banned TTP,” he explained.
