Public support is the driving force for change in Karachi’s security situation said Corps Commander Lieutenant General Naveed Mukhtar.
“Our biggest award and asset is the love shown by the people of Karachi,” Lt Gen Mukhtar said as he unveiled a new monument at Sea View in Clifton on Friday evening.
Flanked by Sindh Governor Dr Ishratul Ebad Khan and Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah, he said the purpose of the Karachi operation is to protect the lives and properties of citizens. He added that with the help and support of masses, gains made in the operation will be made permanent.
Talking about the Nishan-e-Pakistan monument, he said it was a symbol of unity.
