Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) chief minister Pervez Khattak approved the withdrawal of Pakistan Army from Swat and Malakand on Saturday, Express News reported.
He said that withdrawal of troops would begin from Buner and Shangla first.
Pakistan army troops had been ordered into the valley in 2009 by the then democratic government after militants had attempted to take over. After the successful completion of their operation and talks with the militants, it was decided that army personnel will be called off from the area.
“The army deployed in Swat and Malakand will start withdrawing next month,” reported Ehtisham Khan and added that K-P chief minister had signed the respective documents.
The government has struggled to eliminate militancy from the once peaceful valley. Last year in October, militants managed to shoot teenage peace and education activist Malala Yousufzai, and her two friends in Swat.

If that happens, then KPK Government is going to put itself responsible for law and order situations. I think this is the wrong time. They must first get rid of incompetent people in Police, get better intelligence wing, and get better equipment for acting against-terrorism.

This may turn out to be very suicidal for KPK as the militants may regroup and occupy valleys like swat,I dont think police are good enough to take on TTP, KPK needs some kind of counter insurgency force to bring stability to KPK.
