Speaking to media in Lahore, Kaira claimed that Rangers should carry out crackdowns against the terrorist groups who have the backing of our rulers.
He also said that our rulers are not willing to stand up against terrorism and the country’s judiciary, military, media and political parties are concerned over the non-implementation of National Action Plan (NAP).
