Op­er­a­tion to con­tinue till its log­i­cal end: Ishrat

The Pak Banker - - NATIONAL -

Sindh Gov­er­nor Dr Ishratul-Ebad Khan here on Tues­day said that the on­go­ing Karachi Op­er­a­tion will con­tinue till its log­i­cal end. Talk­ing to a five­mem­ber del­e­ga­tion of Fed­eral Cham­ber of Com­merce and In­vest­ment's Com­mit­tee (FPCCI) on Anti Ter­ror­ism and Spe­cial Se­cu­rity, he ap­pre­ci­ated that the rep­u­ta­tion of Karachi as the City of Light was fast be­ing re­stored.

"It is lead­ing to­wards con­fi­dence re­build­ing of the cit­i­zens as well as that of po­ten­tial in­vestors for which our law en­forcers and con­cerned agen­cies de­serve to be fe­lic­i­tated," he told the del­e­ga­tion led by FPCCI's Com­mit­tee's Chair­man, Ab­dul Wa­hab. Dr Ishrat ap­pre­ci­ated that nor­malcy has been re­stored in the me­trop­o­lis in its truest spirit adding that busi­ness as well as recre­ational ac­tiv­i­ties have re­sumed with­out any sense of fear. The Gov­er­nor said im­proved sit­u­a­tion has par­tic­u­larly ben­e­fit­ted the busi­ness com­mu­nity.

"Like any other in­hab­i­tant of Karachi lo­cal traders and in­dus­tri­al­ists were equally ex­posed to se­ri­ous dif­fi­cul­ties due to poor law and or­der sit­u­a­tion," he said. It was in the given back­drop that op­er­a­tion was ini­ti­ated against ter­ror­ists, tar­get killers, ex­tor­tion­ists and those in­volved in ab­duc­tion for ran­som, he said.

The Gov­er­nor also ap­pre­ci­ated the fact that cit­i­zens of Karachi whole­heart­edly sup­ported the op­er­a­tion with­out any dis­tinc­tion as they too were equally keen to­wards restora­tion of peace. Karachi is the hub of com­mer­cial ac­tiv­i­ties in the coun­try and it there­fore can­not leave at the mercy of the ter­ror­ists, he said.
