Islamabad: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif leaves for Karachi for one day visit to sort out Rangers’ issue.
Prime Minister Sharif to chair a meeting in Karachi which will be attended by Sindh Governor Dr Ishratul Ibad, Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah, Home Minister Sohail Anwar Sial and top military officials, including the Karachi corps commander, the Sindh DG Rangers and the heads of other law-enforcement agencies.
On Sunday, Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan regretted that Sindh had not made a decision on the issue of extending the Rangers’ deployment over the past two weeks. “They should have done it by Saturday,” he remarked, insisting that Rangers could not be left in the province without legal cover and would be pulled out if no extension was given. The decision, he noted, ultimately lay with the provincial government.
Nawaz Sharif will also inspect Air Force exercises at Soniami range.
