PESHAWAR: Governor Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Syed Masood Kausar on Saturday alleged that the Punjab government had covert links with “terrorists”, DawnNews reported.

Speaking at a fund distribution for the displaced people of Bara, the governor said that the Punjab government had been encouraging the “terrorists” hiding in the madrassas and had secret links with them.

He further said that the “terrorists” were neither friends of Pakistan nor were they the friends of the tribesmen.

Moreover, he said that the tribesmen were not involved in terrorist activities and that people belonging to all religions resided in the tribal areas.

On the issue of the construction of the controversial Kalabagh dam, Governor Kausar said it was not wise to discuss the matter.
