KARACHI: Appreciating the role played by Rangers, intelligence and other agencies in the ongoing operation against criminals and terrorists, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Monday said there will be no compromise on the law and order situation of Karachi.
Addressing a high-level meeting to review law and order situation at the Governor House here, he lauded sacrifices of law enforcement agencies.
The prime minister said his government has been extending necessary cooperation to the Sindh government, Rangers and intelligence agencies in addressing the security situation of the metropolis.
Governor Sindh Dr Ishratul Ebad, Chief Minister Sindh Syed Qaim Ali Shah, Federal Ministers Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan and Khawaja Asif attended the meeting.
Army Chief General Raheel Sharif, DG ISI, DG ISPR, DG IB, Corps Commander Karachi, Chief Secretary Sindh, IG Police Sindh, Home Secretary Sindh, DG Rangers Sindh and other senior officials were also present in the meeting.
Prime Minister Sharif said the government was fully committed to Karachi operation for the sake of sustainable peace and security in the port city.
He said there was consensus that a major operation was needed and it has achieved successes during the last 27 months since its inception.
The operation however should have been launched six, seven years back as international business community was afraid of visiting the city due to its uncertain security situation, the premier said.
Now the operation has restored confidence of businessmen from abroad, he remarked.
Earlier on arrival in Karachi, he was received by Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah and other senior officials at the airport.
The prime minister also visited the Somniani Range earlier to attend the Pakistan Air Force (PAF) air power demonstration show as the chief guest. The air power show was carried out by bombers and multi-role PAF planes.
