Govt not under pressure by extension in Rangers’ stay: Qaim



CM Syed Qaim Ali Shah stated that Sindh is not under pressure with regard to extension in Rangers’ stay, and the bill in this connection will be passed by the Sindh Assembly within 2 months.

Talking to journalists after offering Eid prayers in Garhi Khuda Bakhsh Bhutto, the chief minister said the provincial government had been extending the stay of the paramilitary force regularly but after the passage of 18th constitutional amendment, the power to do so had now been transferred to the provincial assembly.

He said that maintenance of peace was the provincial government’s responsibility and “we are fulfilling it wholeheartedly. That’s why the most important festival of Eid has passed peacefully”.

“With the help of the army and the federal government, we have launched stern action against terrorists who have infiltrated into the province in the wake of the operation in Waziristan,” he said.
