ISLAMABAD: The Karachi operation should continue at all costs, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said on Thursday after a meeting with Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan.

Express News reported that an important meeting took place between the two leaders in Islamabad and matters of national security were discussed.

Nisar briefed the prime minister about the ongoing operation and steps taken to strengthen the police force in Karachi and the rest of the country.

PM Nawaz said militants will not be allowed to roam freely in cities and that action will be taken against miscreants.

The progress in talks with militant groups was also discussed during the meeting.

Amid speculations of massive reshuffling in the provincial police department, Rangers and the business community had sought assurance from the federal government on the continuation of the Karachi operation.

Finance Minister Ishaq Dar – during his visit to Karachi – had assured businessmen that the centre will continue to support the provincial government on all security issues.

Saleem | 7 years ago | Reply Punjab should not carry the burden of other provinces–rather should go its own way as one Lahore-based policy maker has wished taking with it the Punjabi-dominated army that is sucking the resources of other provinces and help expanding the middle class of Punjab to defend the land-locked militarily vulnerable and water and energy-deficient Punjab from collapsing or being invaded. Let the other provinces sort out their problems freely as they like.

@Major Iqbal: Why would he have tears. This is a good thing is it not?
