Rangers matter will be resolved within few days: CM Sindh

NAUNDERO: Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah said on Sunday that there should be no politics over Rangers power issue, and sky will not fall if two to four days delay occurs in extending paramilitary force’s powers.

He said this while talking to media after showering rose petals and offering prayers at the graves of Bhutto leaders in Garhi Khuda Bux. The chief minister’s two earlier programs announced here to review the arrangements of Benazir Bhutto’s death anniversary were cancelled last week. However, he arrived here today. The chief minister said within few days, Rangers matter will be resolved. He said that Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali did not appreciate the sacrifice of 400 jawans of Sindh police while referring Rangers actions.

He said that federal agencies were attacking Sindh against which he had made complaints to the Prime Minister where after Chaudhry Nisar had said that NAB and FIA actions will be stopped in Sindh. Chaudhry Nisar has taken him into confidence by saying that two to three cases will be probed in Sindh by NAB & FIA and then actions will be discontinued but they are continuing their actions since last six months without any permission, Shah said.

He said that the threat of video and Dr Asim’s issue were separate things and should not be inter-linked. He said operation in Karachi was started after Zarb-e-Azb’s success to curb hidden terrorists in Karachi. He said that they had not contacted MQM to bring them to the cabinet, adding MQM has its own policy about deployment of rangers and its actions. Later, Shah presided over a meeting of Mazar Committee in which divisional and district administration officers, and PPP leaders participated.
