PM vows not to leave Pakistan in hands of armed mobs

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Tuesday said that gone were the days of armed mobs in the country and vowed not to let terrorists take refuge behind religion, sect or politics anymore.

Speaking to a delegation of overseas Pakistanis at the PM House, he said he would visit Karachi on Wednesday and congratulate law enforcers for their appreciable efforts in the ongoing operation against criminals and terrorists.

The prime minister said problems being faced by the country were originated due to criminal negligence in the past, adding that his government was facing the prevailing challenges fearlessly.

PM Nawaz said the government was striving to bring improvement in every field. However, complete resolution of all outstanding issues would take some time, he added.

He said that political interests would create hindrances in resolving issues but the PML-N government would not allow people to slaughter each other in Pakistan.

The prime minister also felicitated the Pakistan Army for fighting against the menace of terrorism and extremism with full zeal.
