The minister said terrorists had fled from this country after launching the operation Zarb-e-Azb and our constitutional laws were not applied outside of the country.

He said it was wrong perception that the government had not implemented National Action Plan with full spirit.

Khurram Dastgir said incidents of terrorism had been reduced during last two years which was internationally recognized.

He said it was good thing that provincial governments had raised anti-terrorism department.

To a query, he said opposition was just criticizing the government for political point scoring which was not fair.
