PESHAWAR - Ruling out the possibility of dialogue with Taliban militants, Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani has made it clear that military operation would be continued till the complete eradication of terrorists and militancy from its roots. Going for dialogue with Taliban militants could prove to be disastrous at this stage, was the reply of the Prime Minister in response to a question during his first-ever chat with media in Governors House here Friday. He said that going for dialogue could derail the efforts and steps initiated against militancy, terrorism and violence. The Prime Minister reminded that in the past, the Government, particularly the NWFP Government, had consumed the maximum time on dialogues and political means but it proved meaningless. He further said that instead of accepting Governments offers, the militants challenged the writ of law and the Government was left with no option but to go for military action. He observed that resuming of dialogue with militants could disappoint all those who were unanimously supporting the military action. At this stage, the whole nation was supporting military action against the militants. Flanked by NWFP Chief Minister Amir Haider Khan Hoti, Governor Owais Ahmad Ghani, Federal Information Minister Qamar Zaman Kaira, Communications Minister Arbab Alamgir Khalil and MNA Asma Alamgir Khalil, the Prime Minister in his brief but comprehensive chat not only highlighted the purpose of his visit to Peshawar but also answered several queries of media.

He said that with the repatriation of IDPs the Government was determined to embark on the reconstruction of the violence affected areas of both NWFP and adjacent tribal region. In response to a question, the Prime Minister reminded that before getting the financial assistance pledged by several foreign countries and international donors, the Federal Government had so far allocated an amount of Rs 50 billion. He said that the purpose of such allocation was to embark on the reconstruction process in the affected areas without any further delay.
