ISLAMABAD, Jun 23 (APP): Minister of State for Interior Baligh-ur-Rehman Thursday said the Prime Minister and Interior Minister have taken notice of recent terror incidents in Karachi.

The minister said Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah held a brief
meeting with DG rangers and directed to take action against target killers.

When PML-N came into power, he said number of target killing incidents
were routine matters but decreased significantly due to the government’s concrete steps.

He said Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif had consulated with all
political parties and stakeholders and launched Karachi operation and it was yielding desired results in elimination of target killers, street crime and extortionists from the mega city.

Karachi law and order situation was much better as compared to the past, he added.

He said terrorists were targeting those people who are living in the
hearts of people.

The minister said National Action Plan (NAP) was implemented with
devotion. Seminaries were registered and some 100 million sims were verified through bio metric system and several unregistered sims were blocked.

interfering in affairs of provinces without any reason.
