Maintain law, order; take action against miscreants


Sindh Governor Imran Ismail has written a letter to Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah in which he urged the provincial government to maintain law and order situation besides ensuring action against the miscreants, it was learnt on Friday.

In its letter, Imran Ismail said that it is the government’s responsibility to provide safe and peaceful environment to its citizens.

He said that the Centre has adopted a clear stance to maintain the supremacy of law. Ismail added that miscreants are organising demonstrations and sit-ins in major cities for a few days and law enforces are facing challenges in maintaining law and order situation.

The governor asked Sindh chief minister to ensure taking legal action against the mischievous elements besides taking necessary steps to end disruption in traffic.

Regarding coronavirus, he said that the third wave of the pandemic has badly affected the nationals across Pakistan.

The Centre and provincial government are working efficiently to curb the spread of the virus.

He said that the positivity rate of COVID-19 cases is low in Sindh and more steps needed to maintain the situation besides making further efforts to improve it.

The National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) is formulating a comprehensive strategy with the coordination of all provinces to stop the spread of the virus.

It is to note that the National Counter Terrorism Authority (NACTA) has placed Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) on the list of banned organizations.

The TLP has been given the 79th number on the list and has been banned from collecting any kind of donations.

Giving donations to the TLP will now be considered as terror financing, the NACTA officials said.

Meanwhile, Interior Ministry has written letters to the provincial chief secretaries to determine the assets of TLP.

It is noteworthy that the federal government has imposed a ban on the Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan under the anti-terrorism act.

A notification was issued by the Ministry of Interior after the federal cabinet approved the summary seeking a ban on religio-political party.
