ANP calls for troops deployment

Karachi

October 20, 2010

President of the Awami National Party (Sindh) and Chairman of the Pukhtoon Action Committee (Loya Jirga), Shahi Syed, condemning the killing of innocent labourers in the Sher Shah Junk market, has called for deployment of the army in the city, according to an ANP Press release.
He said that the government, on account of policies entailing political expediency, had proved a fuel to the target killings.
The police, and the Rangers who had no arbitrary powers, he said, had miserably failed to ensure safety of the citizens and protection to their property.
These agencies, he said, had become totally ineffective on account of the precedence accorded selfish political interests of the rulers.
He called for an immediate army operation in Karachi along the lines of the one in Swat which, he said had proved highly successful.
