  • Army chief visits Karachi, attends meeting of Sindh Apex Committee
Published October 6, 2023

Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Syed Asim Munir said on Friday law enforcement agencies and the government would continue enforcement actions against “spectrum of illegal activities with full force to deny pilferage of resources and economic losses”.

The Army chief made these remarks on his visit to Karachi, where he attended a meeting of the provincial apex committee along with Caretaker Chief Minister Sindh, Justice (Retired) Maqbool Baqar, according to a statement issued by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).

During the Apex Committee meeting, COAS was briefed about revised National Action Plan, operation in riverine (Kacha) areas of Sindh, security of foreign nationals employed on CPEC/Non-CPEC/private projects, repatriation of illegal foreigners, foreign currency regularisation measures, Karachi Transformation Plan, progress on the SIFC initiatives in Sindh, and Green Sindh initiatives.

During the meeting, COAS emphasised, “LEAs and other government departments will continue the enforcement actions against spectrum of illegal activities with full force to deny pilferage of resources and economic losses that the country suffers due to these activities,” the military’s media wing said.

Army chief underscored the need for synergy among all relevant departments for gainful effects of the landmark initiatives, it added.

The participants of the meeting affirmed that state institutions, government departments, and people “are united for progress and prosperity of the province”.

Earlier, upon arrival, COAS was received by Commander Karachi Corps.

Dear Asim Munir, Would you take action against the tax evasion carried out in veils of Afghan Transit Trade and against culprits looting billions of tax collected from people living below poverty line. You can't take action against them because you belong to their class.

The army is NOT overstepping its mandate - Care-taker PM, Mr. Karar.

Enforcement by draconian measures is not the way to go, instead dialogue, political influence, education and a paradigm cultural shift is needed. How to convert the illegal Afghans in the country as loyal residents is our challange.
