Pakistan plans to tackle TTP resurgence

Islamabad, Aug 12 (UNI) The Shehbaz Sharif government is preparing a ‘contingency plan’ to deal with potential resurgence of the outlawed Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) after reports suggested the terrorist outfit was trying to make a comeback.
On Thursday, Defence Minister Khawaja Asif told the media that the government was aware of the reports about the TTP regrouping in Swat district and that the relevant authorities were in constant touch with Afghanistan on this matter.
Although the government has been holding talks with the TTP for months to broker some kind of a deal, prospects of such an agreement are grim, sources familiar with the development told The Express Tribune on Thursday.
