ISLAMABAD, Dec 13 (APP): Minister of State for Water and Power Abid Sher Ali Sunday said that blackmailing and political influence would not be allowed to hamper the ongoing operation in Karachi.

Abid Sher Ali said Rangers did not get extension in policing powers as a result of possible ill-intention of Sindh government, a news channel reported.

He advised the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) to remember the martyrdom of its leader Benazir Bhutto, saying blood of martyrs would not go waste.

Karachi operation was against criminals and terrorists which would be expedited, he added.
