PPP MPAs concerned over Ch Nisar statement about new phase of operation in Karachi only although terrorism jolted whole country specially Punjab
Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) MPAs Dr Sohrab Khan Serki, Sardar Muqeem Khan Khosso, Haji Abdul Rauf Khosso and Mir Abid Sindrani while showing their reaction on a statement of the federal interior minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan for starting a new operation in Karachi said it looked as if roots of all crimes and terrorism were based only in Karachi while the situation in other parts of the country was calm and tranquil.
They said the terrorism had jolted the whole of the country and many parts of the country were worst affected with the menace of terrorism, extremism and sectarian violence. In particular, different extremist and terrorist organisations have their bases in Punjab and the terrorists from their bases in Punjab have carried many bids of terrorism in other parts of the country. A sheer example of terrorism from such terrorist groups is the suicide attack on a Moharram procession in Jacobabad, which was the real portrayal of their sick mentality.
They said the Sindh government is doing all to eliminate the extremism and terrorism from the province but the federal government and federally controlled institutions have failed to extend their full support to Sindh provincial government.
They said the federal government should review its policy and stance on fight against terrorism and should extend full cooperation to the provinces especially Sindh government so as to fully eliminate the menace of extremism and terrorism.
