KARACHI: Minister of State for Interior Shehryar Afridi on Saturday asserted peace has been restored in Karachi and no one can disrupt it again
Addressing the 26th passing out parade of Sindh Rangers in Karachi, the minister of state for interior said, “Rangers have played a key role in restoring peace in Karachi and the rest of Sindh.”
“Sindh Rangers’ contribution has also been commendable in holding some recent international events, including Pakistan Super League (PSL) matches, in the city.
Afridi informed that Sindh Rangers carried out around 16,000 operations in five years and arrested over 12,000 terrorists and criminals.
The minister of state for interior asserted said the state cannot be blackmailed on any pretext nor the government will make any compromise on the Constitution. “Those who have become representatives of the people and are working on someone else’s agenda in the name of democracy should know that the state will no longer be blackmailed nor will there be any compromise on the Constitution,” he said.
“No one will now be able to parlayse the system here through a phone call from outside the country because the government will make no comprises. Now no one will be able to dictate decisions while sitting abroad,” Afridi stressed.
The minister of state for interior further warned “miscreants and anti-state elements to leave their nefarious practices”. “It is my message that those sitting in the country and supporting enemy forces and speaking their language should change their direction,” he added.
