    Balochistan to be cleared of terrorists, vows govt

    QUETTA: The government of Balochistan pledged on Friday that the responsibility of providing security to people would be fulfilled at all costs and actions against terrorists and anti-social elements and their facilitators would continue to purge the province of all terrorists.

    A meeting held here with Chief Minister Sanaullah Zehri in the chair decided to pursue a `tit-for-tat policy’ to deal with terrorists and their facilitators to ensure fool-proof security in the province.

    There was consensus among participants that terrorist attacks on police and other security personnel were a reaction to successful anti-terror operations being carried out by law enforcement agencies.

    The meeting was informed that terrorist attacks could not deter the resolve of the provincial government, the police and security forces.

    The meeting decided that nobody would be allowed to undermine law and order and terrorists and their facilitators would not be allowed to gain a foothold. It decided to improve intelligence sharing among various law- enforcement agencies to ensure fool-proof security across the province.

    People to be provided security at all costs
    Official sources said that the meeting had also discussed security of educational institutions and decided to ensure security at all educational institutions.

    The meeting decided to prepare a security policy under which a separate force would be set up.

    Chief Secretary Saifullah Chattah said that the government would ensure security at all educational institutions within two years. But immediately, he added, emergency steps would be taken to provide security in universities and some other educational institutions.

    The chief minister ordered the officials concerned to build boundary walls around all universities and other educational institutions and make watch towers. Besides, he said, security personnel should be armed with modern weapons.

    Nawab Zehri said that because of long borders and meagre resources of the provincial government it was not possible to man entire borders, but all available resources were being used to stop terrorists from infiltrating the province and curb their acts of terror.

    Home Minister Mir Sarfaraz Ahmed Bugti, Home Secretary Akbar Hussain Durrani, IG Police Ahsan Mehboob, DIG Quetta, senior officers of the Frontier Corps, Gazaband Scouts and other officers concerned attended the meeting.
