Byline: Salman Yousafzai

PESHAWAR -- After government and Taliban reached a deadlock in peace dialogues, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government has started its preparation to bear the burden of IDPs as the full scale military operation looms over North Waziristan.

Talking to The Frontier Post Sheraz Paracha, spokesman for KP Chief Minister, said that the government was prepared to deal with possible arrival of Internally Displaced Persons from Waziristan. However, he added, Chief Minister Parvez Khattak also meet with Corps Commander Peshawar on Saturday and discussed the changing scenario.

He added that if the military action started in Waziristan, the burden of IDPs would be on the shoulders of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

He said the chief minister has already conveyed the message to Interior Minister that KP government would avoid giving place to the IDPs inside big cities of the province keeping in mind the security situation.

Sources also informed The Frontier Post that Pervez Khattak had also hold meetings with UNHCR and other organization officials to review the arrangements of the IDPs arrival.

It is mentioned that massive displacement has been started from various areas of North Waziristan and Mirali after jet aerial strikes on Thursday night.

Many peoples move their families towards Bannu and other cities of KP due to fear of military operation as the peace talks among government and TTP reached a deadlock when Taliban killed 23 FC personnel's.

Sources further said that FC men and other law enforcement agencies will also become part of operation.
