(Karachi P.R. 21st July, 2016) Sheikh Khalid Tawab (S.I), Senior Vice President of Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce & Industry (FPCCI) has urged the Chief Minister of Sindh Syed Qaim Ali Shah to extend the deadline of Rangers’ stay in Sindh till complete restoration of law & order situation and also proposed him (CM) to ask the Federal Government to give a legal cover to the Rangers’ stay in the Province for this purpose so that deliberate hindrances being created in the Ranger’s Operation for political mileage by the anti-social elements be foiled.

The FPCCI SVP argued that the Rangers have been playing a vital role in bringing back the peace and tranquility in Sindh in general and the city of Karachi in particular. The business community cannot afford any slackness in the ongoing National Action Plan and operation being conducted by the Rangers as they have significantly improved the law & order situation resulting restoration of confidence of the business community of the City who prior to the Rangers operation, were at the mercy of the law breakers, culprits, extortionists, kidnapping for ransom, target killers, street criminals etc. He said that Karachi is the business hub of Pakistan and restoring the peace of the city resulted in the development of country’s economy.

Sheikh Khalid Tawab appreciated the efforts of the Director General of Rangers Major Bilal Akbar and his team in curtailing these crimes and remaking Karachi as the city of light. He apprehended that any decision against the stay would reverse the present law & order situation and anti-social elements would be remerged.
