LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chief Imran Khan on Tuesday put re-emphasis on a Rangers Operation in Punjab, similar to the ongoing one in Karachi.
The PTI Chief was speaking to media in Lahore. He said that if an operation can continue in Karachi then why not in Punjab.
“If there is a problem, then why no operation has been initiated against terrorists?” he said.
Imran said that terrorism will not end until police has been de-politicised, adding that police needs to be impartial in order to improve performance.
He said that every political party signed the National Action Plan, and now it should be immediately implemented.
The PTI Chief said that the Police Act approved in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly, will be presented in Sindh and Punjab Assemblies as well.
Imran Khan alleged that Hamza Shehbaz appoints SHOs.
Meanwhile, Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah said that a ‘great operation has been going on in Punjab’.
He said that 300 most dangerous terrorists have either been killed or caught in the province.
The PTI chief visited Lahore today, a day after a deadly blast, martyred at least 14 people, including senior police officers. A suicide bomber had hit close to the Punjab Assembly in Lahore, officials said. Hundreds of demonstrators were gathered in the area to protest against Punjab government’s amendments to the Drug Act, 1976.
This is not the first time that the PTI chief has put forth the demand of a Karachi-like Rangers’ operation in the province of Punjab.
Imran Khan in August last year had called for a Karachi-like Rangers’ operation in Lahore and Islamabad, citing need for better security in Punjab.
