Altaf invited Army for targeted operation in Karachi: Khursheed Shah


KARACHI: Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly, Syed Khursheed Shah on Sunday said that federal institutions like National Accountability Bureau (NAB) and Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) should not have any role to play in Sindh.


Speaking to media representatives here, he said Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain himself invited the Pak Army for the targeted operation in the metropolis. Therefore, recent ‘hue and cry’ from Mr Hussain against arrests and raids was not justified, he added.

The Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) stalwart said he hopes that former chief justice Iftikhar Chaudhry play an active role in the country’s political affairs.

Declaring corruption a ‘cancer’, Shah said the ‘disease’ had spread during the 55-year-long dictatorial regimes in the country.

Commenting over PPP leaders parting ways with the party and joining Imran Khan’s PTI, he said those who joined his party while it was in power were now looking for ‘new nests’.
