CM Sindh summons emergency meeting to discuss Rangers’ powers


KARACHI: A day after rejection of Sindh government’s summary by the Ministry of Interior, Sindh Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah has summoned an emergency meeting today (Wednesday) to ponder different options on Rangers’ powers, Dunya News reported.


On Tuesday, the interior ministry rejected the provincial government’s summary and extended Rangers’ special powers for another 60 days.

According to sources, the provincial government has started consultation with legal experts and later the authorities could approach court in this regard.

The Sindh cabinet meeting is likely to reject the interior ministry’s decision on Rangers’ powers.

Talking to media after meeting with National Assembly Speaker Ayaz Sadiq in Karachi, Sindh Assembly Speaker Agha Siraj Durrani said that the federal government should not have rejected the resolution straightaway.

Federation’s attitude on the matter is regrettable, he said.

Siraj Durrani said that Nawaz Sharif’s government exists due to Asif Ali Zardari.

Provincial minister Sikandar Mandhro also stated that the Sindh Assembly resolution was passed in accordance with the law and constitution.

He said the provincial government can still use several options on the matter.
