KARACHI: War of words has started between the Sindh and federal government on the issue of giving extension to Sindh Rangers’ authorities in Karachi, for continuation of operation against terrorism and corruption, Aaj News reported on Sunday.
A resolution about Rangers will be presented in the Monday’s session of Sindh Assembly, said sources.
The resolution has been included again in the agenda of Sindh Assembly and it has been decided that it would be presented tomorrow in the assembly, where Pakistan People’s Party would fully respond to Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali’s fiery statements as well, the sources added.
Minister of State for Water and Power Abid Sher Ali criticized ‘the malicious intention’ of the Sindh government and said if somebody thought he would stop Rangers’ operation then he should understand that we would not be blackmailed in this matter.
“This should be clear that Karachi operation is not against any political party and it will continue till elimination of the last terrorist,” he said.
The federal government earlier made appeals to the Sindh government for extension of Ragners’ authorities which were responded by silence, however after federal ministers spoke on this matter and the Sindh government’s negligence, the Sindh government responded with torrid remarks.
Opposition Leader in National Assembly Khursheed Shah said corruption and terrorism did not exist only in Sindh, but Punjab as well. He said he would talk with the prime minister after his arrival from Turkmenistan.
