Islamabad (Staff Report): Sindh Governor Mohammad Zubair has said that former Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Gen. (retd) Raheel Sharif was an ordinary general.
Speaking at a two-day 'Leaders in Islamabad' business summit here on Thursday, Zubair said that the credit for launching operation against criminal and creating peace in Karachi should go to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and not former Army Chief Gen (r) Raheel Sharif.
“Media always gives credit to former Army Chief Raheel Sharif regarding Karachi operation. He was a normal man and regular general. He is a part of our past now,” the Governor said.
“Credit for Karachi operation should go to PM Nawaz Sharif and not to Raheel Sharif,” he said, adding that Karachi is peaceful only because of Nawaz.
The Governor said Rangers and Army personnel had been deployed in the city under previous regimes as well but no other government had showed the will to go for a full-fledged operation.
Responding to a question about Mutahida Qaumi Movement (MQM), Zubair ‘Muttahida is history now’. “(MQM headquarter) Nine Zero has been locked down and no one would dare to open it,” he said.
