100-day plan: Interior Ministry to unveil NAP-2


The Interior Ministry is set to unveil a new version of National Action Plan (NAP) and is also planning to restructure the National Counter Terrorism Authority (NACTA) to effectively tackle internal threats to security, reported a local media outlet.

A document noting the ministry’s performance during 100 days of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and its future plans was released on Tuesday.

According to the document, the NAP-2 plans to bridge the gaps in the first version rolled out in January 2015—shortly after a deadly attack on the Army Public School (APS) in Peshawar.

The NAP-2 is a brainchild of Minister of State for Interior Shehryar Khan Afridi.

As the first 100 days of the PTI government completed, the Ministry of Interior emerged as the most efficient one.

The Interior Ministry has secured the lead owing to the fact that the minister, besides completing tasks given by Prime Minister Imran Khan, has also taken on his own 44 initiatives to make the interior division and all its subordinate departments public-friendly.
