ISLAMABAD, Dec 15: Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has said the final draft of national internal security policy is ready and will be presented before the cabinet committee on national security, most likely to meet on Tuesday, and later to the cabinet for approval.
He said at a press conference on Sunday that there would be three components of the time-bound policy. Two of the components will be strategic and operational while the third will be confidential.
He said a clear timeframe had been spelt out and the target would be to have an operational institutional network in place in a year, adding that security agencies would be organised and strengthened.
Chaudhry Nisar said his decision to cancel illegally issued ‘official passports’ had annoyed a lot of people because those affected included leaders of his party (PML-N) and men in military uniform and robes.
He said he also had withdrawn the civil armed forces who were serving unauthorised persons because only the president, the prime minister and the Chief Justice of Pakistan were entitled to the service.
He said these forces had been retained and used for land-grabbing by many.
