ISLAMABAD - The preliminary meeting of Implementation Committee for National Action Plan (NAP) was held under chairmanship of National Security Adviser Gen (Retd) Nasser Khan Janjua. The committee finalised set of recommendations to do away with hitches causing delay in the implementation of NAP.

According to informed sources, these recommendations will be presented in a high-level meeting to be chaired by the prime minister today (Tuesday).

The implementation committee, sources said, reviewed threadbare the 20-point National Action Plan and causes of its delay.

“One of the finalised recommendations includes setting of timeline for implementation,” a source said, adding the committee took stock of progress made so far on the NAP.

Those attended the meeting included the director general of military operations, interior secretary, director general of National Counter-Terrorism Authority, chief secretaries, inspectors general of police, home secretaries, additional secretary PMO and representatives of intelligence agencies.

The committee was also assisted by a representative from each intelligence agency while the military will be represented by the DG military operations.

The government following deadly suicide bombing in Quetta hospital early this month approved a plan for setting up of 29 wings of the Frontier Corps and constituted the body that would oversee NAP’s implementation.

On August 11, the prime minister announced formation of a task force under the NAP mainly to improve coordination between federal and provincial law enforcement agencies.
