Sindh Assembly to decide on Rangers policing powers
Pakistan Muslim League (Functional), Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) will table a resolution in the House today.
The Sindh government has summoned a assembly session to debate and grant powers to the paramilitary force to approve its stay in Karachi for another three months.
Speaker of Sindh Assembly Agha Siraj Durrani said Rangers and police have demonstrated good performance in Karachi.
While MQM lawmaker and Opposition Leader in the Sindh Assembly Khwaja Izharul Hasan said his party had no objections if any institution was granted special powers.
“We support Rangers in its actions against corruption in the province,” he added.
PML-F legislator Nusrat Sehar Abbasi said restricting Rangers powers in the province was aimed at protecting ‘big corrupt fishes’.
