He said that na­tion will have to unite on a plat­form for the sta­bil­ity of the coun­try and elim­i­na­tion of ter­ror­ism and ex­trem­ism, foil­ing the ne­far­i­ous de­signs of anti-state ele­ments.

He said that law en­force­ment agen­cies had ren­dered glo­ri­ous ser­vices for main­te­nance of law and order and pro­tec­tion of life and prop­erty of cit­i­zens.

He said that the pro­vin­cial gov­ern­ment of Sindh with the sup­port of se­cu­rity forces have made ef­fec­tive mea­sures in this di­rec­tion and achieved suc­cess­ful re­sults in the restor­ing peace.
