In the backdrop of precarious security situation in the country, the announcement of a National Internal Security Policy by the government is highly appreciable. It is clear that, to deal with the menace of terrorism, we need a comprehensive strategy and a proactive approach. PML-N government deserves the credit for drawing up the first ever national security policy which takes care of all aspects of the security situation in the country. For an instance, it highlights the policy of dialogue, improving security apparatus and the use of force as and when required. Besides, it is encouraging to note that all the agencies in Pakistan, from now onwards, would coordinate with each other under one command. We wish the government luck and support its effective and timely initiatives to deal with terrorism. A.A.SEHGAL, Lahore, March 17.
