Karachi Operation is not against any politcal party: PM

KARACHI: The operation in Karachi is not against any political party, said Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif while addressing a meeting on peace at the Governor House, Aaj News reported.

He said that operation in Karachi will continue without any discrimination. “It is only targeting criminals,” he said.

He said that the security agencies would get to the killers of Rashid Godil and also arrest the accused in the Baldia Factory Fire case.

He said that they had already defeated the terrorists and most of them had gone hiding.

He added that attacks like those on Rashid Godil were an act of cowardice, and the terrorist were just trying to prove that they were relevant.

He said that traders in the city were happy with the operation.

The PM came to the city for a brief visit. He inaugrated the KII nuclear power plant, which had become an issue of much controversy.
