PM says terrorists should be brought to justice in weeks

HUB, 12 JUNE (DNA) – Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Friday said that terrorists behind heinous attacks should be brought to justice in weeks and not months.

The Prime Minister expressed these views in a meeting with Sindh Governor Ishratul Ibad in Karachi to discuss law and order situation.

The PM was received by Dr Ibad on his arrival in Karachi. The meeting discussed overall law and order situation in the province.

FGInterior Minister Chaudhry Nisar and Minister of State for Petroleum and Natural Resources Jam Kamal also participated the meeting along with others.

Earlier, Nawaz inaugurated Byco Oil Refinery in Hub. While addressing the participants of the inaugural ceremony, he said that setting-up an oil refinery in Balochistan is a milestone achieved by the government.

He announced making Gwadar Port duty-free and connecting it with Central Asia. The PM said that the production of oil in the country is far less than the demand of the masses.

Nawaz said that Pakistan need to build road connections with Central Asian countries. He said that a road is being constructed from Gwadar to Quetta. This road would lead to China border from Quetta, he added.

While commenting on counter strategies against crimes in Karachi, the PM said that the operation would continue until the very last one of criminals is killed. He said that the arrested insurgents should be brought to justice not within months but weeks.

He also said that miscreants behind Safoora carnage have been caught and it is hoped that the courts would bring them to justice as soon as possible. Safoora incident depicts lack of courage and desperate tactics, he added.

Nawaz said that terrorists do not deserve to be dealt with softness and even a bit of leniency. The PM also talked about government’s efforts to tackle energy crisis. He said that the power outages would end by 2017. DNA
