Speaking to senior journalists here Sunday, Rashid said responsibilities of provincial governments have increased for restoration of peace in the country. The minister added that the government is playing its role to deal with those elements wishing to impose their agenda on others.
The Minister called for concerted and collective efforts to tackle the issue of terrorism as the extremist way of thinking is against democracy‚ the government and the media.
