Karachi: Senior PPP leader Nisar Khuhro yesterday said the party has other options if Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif does not diffuse the tussle between the federal and Sindh governments over the issue of policing powers granted to Rangers.

“We have other options which we will consider if PM Nawaz remains unable to resolve the issue,” the provincial minister said while addressing a press conference in Larkana, according to Express Tribune newspaper website.

The PPP leader accused Interior Minister Ch Nisar Ali of creating differences between the federal and provincial governments. “By bypassing Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, Nisar is actually creating a fight between the federation and the provinces,” he added.

The minister also accused the interior minister of achieving his personal gains by issuing a notification extending Rangers’ powers in the metropolis.

“We did not resort to any unconstitutional act by passing a resolution in Sindh Assembly against unconditional powers for the paramilitary force,” he said adding that National Action Plan should now be called ‘Nawaz League Action Plan’.

Rejecting a notion that a forward block was in the making in province, said anyone planning to bring a no-confidence resolution in the assembly against the speaker will not succeed.–Nation Monitoring
