Rangers to be withdrawn if denied extension in powers: Nisar
The announcement was made by Federal Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan while talking to media persons here on Sunday.
The interior minister added that Sindh Government is not serious in extending the special powers of Rangers in Karachi.
He said that the federal government had contacted the provincial government twice on the matter but did not get any serious reply from them. He added that the para-military force will be called back from the city if the situation remains the same.
Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will visit Karachi on Monday (tomorrow) to review the law and order situation in the metropolis.
Pakistan People’s Party leader Maula Bakhsh Chandio said that the special powers will soon be sanctioned to Rangers.
It should be noted that CM Sindh Syed Qaim Ali Shah is yet to approve a summary for sanctioning ‘special powers’ to Pakistan Rangers in Karachi.
