Former Sindh chief minister and PML-F Senator Syed Muzffar Hussain Shah has said intelligence agencies should be strengthened to help police launch crackdowns on the terrorists and criminals.
When asked to comment over the law and order situation, he said the intelligence agencies should uncover the forces trying to destabilise Karachi.He said, having held the position of chief minister once, he was well aware of the issues and would be able to deal with the present challenges had he been the chief executive of the province.
Shah underlined the need of a Mohallah committee to be formed in close liaison with the concerned SHOs and DSP of the police stations to curtail crime. Such a committee should have direct contact with the area police.
He further underlined the need for cooperation among the political parties and with the intelligence agencies to tackle growing tensions in the metropolis. Any criminal arrested should not be released over political affiliations, the senator stressed.
Former Sindh chief minister and PML-N Sindh President Syed Ghous Ali Shah told The News that the situation in Karachi was bad and the government should take immediate measures to improve it.
