Law and order improved in Karachi : Dr Tariq


ISLAMABAD, Aug 2 (APP): Minister of State for Capital
Administration and Development Division (CADD) Dr Tariq Fazal Chaudhry Tuesday said law and order situation in Karachi had improved.

The Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) wanted a stable
Karachi as it was the economic hub of the country, he said
while talking to a private news channel.

The minister said, “Special powers should be given to
the Rangers not only for Karachi but also for the entire Sindh.

Peace could only be achieved if criminals were eliminated from the whole province.”

He said police had failed to maintain law and order
in Karachi, but the Rangers had restored peace in the city.

The Karachi operation, he said, was launched with the consensus of provincial government under the supervision of Sindh Chief Minister.

An All Parties Conference (APC) was also called to remove
reservations of the political parties regarding the Karachi
operation, he added.

Tariq Fazal said target killings, street crimes, terror acts and extortion cases had reduced to a greatr extent as the people of Karachi now felt secure in a peaceful environment.

Replying to a question, he said new Sindh Chief Minister
Murad Ali Shah was a competent person, who, hopefully, would work for the welfare of people and maintenance of law and order in the province.
