PESHAWAR NWFP Senior Minister Bashir Ahmad Bilour has made it clear that Swat peace agreement was only Malakand region-specific and it would not be applicable to other parts of the province. He warned that Taliban would not be acceptable in the provincial metropolis and other parts of the province as rumours were being spread that they were approaching Peshawar and other settled areas of the province. Talking to media persons outside the provincial assembly, Bilour maintained that it was top priority of the government to bring peace in the province and added that Swat peace agreement was meant for only Malakand region and it could not be applicable to other parts of the NWFP province. He claimed that the provincial government had apprised Advisor to the Premier on Interior Rehman Malik of the Swat accord and his government point of view, adding that the federal government, too, had reposed confidence on the peace agreements with militants. Replying to a question, the Senior Minister said that presence of Taliban in Peshawar and adjoining areas is unacceptable to them, saying that they would maintain writ of the government at all costs and no one would be allowed to create law and order situation in the province. Online adds: Chief Minister NWFP Amir Haider Khan Hoti has said that the government has its writ in the province and categorically ruled out any chances of Taliban's control over Peshawar. Talking to media before the starting of session of NWFP Assembly on Friday, the Chief Minister said that the Swat peace deal and negotiations with Taliban were a complicated process and the federal government has accepted our stance over striking peace deal in Swat. He underlined that the provincial government has long term polices to maintain peace in the province and urged the people not to perturb with the slow process. The NWFP government made pledge with the people regarding maintaining peace in the province, he added. He commented that the elements involved in the violence should be brought into mainstream and talks should be held with them aiming to get information regarding their problems and it is a process which can maintain sustainable peace in the province.  Monitoring Desk adds: The NWFP government has accelerated its efforts to contact Taliban leaders in Swat, as Taliban did not participate in an already scheduled meeting in Peshawar showing a commitment to the decision of severing their contacts with the government, the BBC reported. When contacted, Taliban spokesman Muslim Khan confirmed the news. However, he disclosed that the government's negotiation committee had expressed its will to contact Taliban leaders to which they had responded positively. A member of the government in the negotiation committee, Wajid Ali Khan, said that the Friday meeting between the government and Taliban could not be held as per schedule, because Taliban had expressed certain reservations over the way the government had been implementing the peace deal. He said Taliban were demanding an immediate release of their men from the prisons, withdrawal of army and closure of checkposts in the area. However, he hoped that all the issues would be settled soon. He said that army personnel would be pulled out gradually after establishing law and order in Swat and added that some checkposts in the area had already been closed. However, some judicial and administrative proceedings were causing a delay in the release of Taliban prisoners, he confessed. Wajid said that the government wanted to make the deal fruitful, and government's noble intentions were quite evident by its move of turning Maulana Fazlullah's seminary into Swat Islamic University. Renowned Islamic scholar Dr Muhammad Farooq has been appointed as project director of the proposed university, he added.
