CM Murad chairs meeting to review security for ex-president

Karachi (Web Desk): Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah chaired a meeting on Tuesday to review security measures taken for former president and Pakistan People’s Party co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari's return to Karachi on December 23.

Senator Saeed Ghani, Nisar Khuhro, Waqar Mehdi and Acting IG Sindh Police Mushtaq Meher, Deputy Commissioner and Commissioner Karachi attended the meeting.

CM Murad directed attendees of the meeting to take strict security arrangements for people who arrive at the airport to welcome Zardari. He added that a traffic plan should put in place so that the public is not disturbed.

He also considered the former President’s arrival at Bilawal House by a helicopter.

Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Sunday announced that former president Asif Ali Zardari will return to Pakistan on Dec 23.

He said that doctors have allowed Zardari to travel, adding that everyone is praying for his health.

Zardari has been in Dubai since 2015 under ‘self-exile’. One of the possible reasons behind the former president’s decision could be a harsh speech he gave against the country’s military, accusing it of going overboard with its authority.
