PESHAWAR: Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Governor Sardar Mahtab Ahmad Khan on Friday hoped that smooth and congenial atmosphere would soon prevail in North Waziristan and internally displaced persons would be able to return to their homes with honour and dignity.

He stated this during a visit to Miramshah where army commanders briefed him about the ongoing operation Zarb-i-Azb.

Operation Commander Maj-Gen Zafarullah Khan informed the governor about advancements, successes and future targets of the operation, which was launched against militants on June 18, according to a handout.

“Security of the country and peace and development of the nation and ensuring better future for the coming generations are the cherished objectives of all of us and we will spare no efforts to materialise them,” said Sardar Mahtab.

He said the nation saluted mothers of soldiers and officers whose sons were facing difficult circumstances with courage and offering sacrifices for making security of the country impregnable.

The governor said that there would be no dearth of resources as far as taking care of the IDPs and their rehabilitation in their respective areas was concerned.

Later, talking to army soldiers during his visit to Miramshah Bazaar, the governor said that their spirit of courage and sacrifice deserved a tribute.
