JACOBABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan said on Tuesday that action needs to be taken against some ‘black sheeps’ in the police department who he alleged were responsible for target killings in Karachi.

Talking to media in Jacobabad, Khan said that his party intends to implement radical reforms in Sindh Police once it comes into power.

Relief for flood victims

The PTI chief urged the incumbent government to provide rescue and relief to flood victims in Sindh.

Political alliances cannot stop tsunami

Khan took the opportunity to swipe at the ruling Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), saying that they would not be able to stop the tsunami of the party even if it made alliance with Pakistan Muslim League Quaid (PML-Q) and the Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N).

The PTI chief refuted rumors that his party had suggested a name for the caretaker minister.
He promised that he his party would make a law to ensure that girls from minority communities are not converted to Islam forcedly.

    What an irresponisble statement by Imran Khan. The morale of the police is alredy low and he his pushing them even further by making unsubstatnted claimsRecommend

    The most corrupt department of all the provincial governments in the country is :

    P (Polite)
    O (Obedient)
    L (Loyal)
    I (Intelligent)
    C (Courteous)
    E (Efficient)

    None of the qualities mentioned above is in POLICE.

    If none of the previous governments cannot put the POLICE of Pakistan on the right track, how can Imran Khan can think that he can do it?

    I am from Karachi and have been in police service for the last 10 years, so with authority I can say that Imran Khan is right in his assessment. I personally know some police officers who are directly involved in target killing.
    P.S i am not a sympathizer of khan but He s right this time.

    These are throwaway statements. How many times has Mr.Khan visited Sindh and/or come out with any concrete policies towards solving its very unique issues, including Karachi, the lifeline of Pakistan? He seems to be unconcerned with this province, apparently because he doesn’t see a votebank there.
