ISLAMABAD: Federal Interior Minister Chaudhary Nisar has said that Karachi operation is being detracked. He said that Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) should not make Karachi operation controversial over one person.
Talking at a press conference, Chaudhary Nisar said that Karachi operation began on the request of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) while Farooq Sattar had said himself that Karachi should be handed over to Army. Citing Army’s commitments in war against terror, Nisar said that Pakistan Army cannot be made to stand in the streets of Karachi.
Nisar said that all parties had been taken on board at the beginning of operation. He said that federal government has never taken credit of Karachi operation. The federal minister said that it had provided support to provincial government and Rangers in its own jurisdiction.
Hailing Karachi operation as a success, Chaudhary Nisar said that the state of the city in June 2013 and the present speaks volumes of the ongoing operation. He said that for the past two weeks, it has been seen that Karachi operation is being detracked while Rangers is being marginalized in statements for the past 3 days.
