ISLAMABAD -- Minister of State for Interior Shehryar Afridi Tuesday said

that a plan would be unveiled in March next year to make National Counter Terrorism Authority [NACTA] more meaningful and vibrant.

He stated this while expressing his views on a private member bill in National Assembly namely the National Centre for Countering Violent Extremism Bill, 2018 which was sponsored by PML-N MNA Romina Khursheed Alam.
