* 3,000 terrorists have already surrendered, another 2,000 likely to do so
* Ministers’ resignation will not resolve power crisis


Following the successful military operation in Swat, Malakand and their surrounding tribal areas, the government is now having trouble accommodating the thousands of Taliban who have surrendered to security forces, said Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani on Friday.

Addressing the Senate, he said 3,000 terrorists had surrendered to the government already and another 2,000 were expected to surrender in the coming weeks. However, he added, there was no room to house all these prisoners. Discussing law and order, he said the government had successfully brought the situation under control with the help of the nation and its political leadership.
