Sindh Assembly to decide on Rangers’ further deployment


Sindh Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah on Tuesday said that after the 18th Amendment, the Sindh Assembly was competent to award another extension to the Sindh Rangers to continue their anti-crime operations.

“But, this time it has to be taken to the assembly at least two months before putting it on the agenda of the House,” Shah told reporters during a visit to Safoora Goth. “The ways and means to give them (Rangers) another extension would be explored but we have to talk to them first,” he said.

Reply to another question, Shah said that the services and sacrifices of Pakistan Rangers and Sindh police could not be forgotten. “They have done job but as I said there was a seriousness of army chief,” he said.

“Gen Sharif took personal interest to launch a strong operation that’s why we have received encouraging results, otherwise Rangers were already in the city and all over province.”
