KARACHI : Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will be in Karachi today (Thursday) to review law and order situation in the provincial metropolis. The premier, during his day long visit, will chair a high-level meeting during which he will also be apprised of the ongoing targeted operation in the city. Members of the law enforcement agencies including Rangers and police will particularly give briefing to the prime minister about hurdles in the operation and how the criminal elements are still continuing their activities despite passage of about a year in the operation.
Nawaz is also expected to meet with Governor Sindh Dr Ishratul Ibad and Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah.
The ongoing operation in Karachi was initiated in September 2013 under a directive issued by the federal government against criminals already identified by federal, military and civil agencies in view of the declining law and order situation in the country’s largest metropolis. These raids are being led by Rangers with support of police.
