SUKKUR: Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah on Sunday said the security agencies had found solid evidence of Indian intelligence agency RAW’s involvement in the Safoora tragedy and the Karachi unrest.
Addressing a press conference here, he expressed his government’s determination to eliminate criminals from the port city of Karachi at all costs.“We have a lot of courage and spirit to fix Karachi’s troubles and the army and intelligence agencies are cooperating with the provincial government.”
The CM said criticism for the sake of criticism will not be tolerated, adding that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan should ‘mind his own province’ and answer for the lives lost in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa first.
Meanwhile, Sindh Minister for Information Sharjeel Memon on Sunday said the Karachi operation will continue till its logical conclusion.Talking to reporters here, he said the Karachi operation would be concluded after the restoration of peace, as the writ of the government had been targeted by terrorists.
He appealed to the people of Karachi to trust and facilitate the operation being carried out by the law-enforcement agencies.“Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah has been a good administrator, as he has given a freehand to the Sindh Police and Rangers to implement the policies of the government,” added Sharjeel.
The police personnel, he said, were being imparted modern skills and provided weapons to fight and achieve victory against terrorist organisations.On the water crisis, Sharjeel said the demand for water had dropped to around 400 million gallons in Karachi.
He said the government had supplied free water in affected areas of the city. “Around 1,000 million gallons is the water demand, whereas 600 gallons are being supplied to the metropolis,” he said.
He said around 800 tankers were supplying water free of cost and the supply would increase from Tuesday (today).“Work on 100-million-gallon Dhabeji pumping

station is underway, which will be completed in the next nine months,” the minister said.
