Rangers' powers: Nawaz summons chief minister to Islamabad

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Monday summoned Sindh Chief Minister (CM) Qaim Ali Shah to Islamabad to discuss Rangers' issue. Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah said that he would meet the Prime Minister in the federal capital after discussions on Rangers' issue with party leadership. Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah received him upon his arrival.

The Prime Minister was accompanied by Finance Minister Ishaq Dar, Khurram Dastagir and Minister for Water and Power Khawaja Asif on a day long visit. During his visit, the Prime Minister inspected the site of Port Qasim Power Project. The visit comes a day after political atmosphere heated up following Pakistan People's Party (PPP) chairperson Bilawal Bhutto Zardari's accusations against the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) for allegedly victimising the opposition party in the name of National Action Plan (NAP).
