In a ceremony in the Chambers of Commerce and Industry in Karachi, Minister of State for Interior Shehryar Khan Afridi announced that the Pakistan government will create a national criminal database.
He went on to elaborate that stakeholders will be taken into confidence and a detailed policy will be created to deal with the increasing crime rate in the city.
He further stated that economic growth cannot happen until we cease to ignore the cries of the business sector.
Afridi stated, “We’ll design a policy with consensus and consultation of the provinces to address the issues of business community.”
He assured that no issues will go ignored during PTI’s tenure.
“Dishonouring the commitments has been a norm in previous governments, but we are here to undo the wrongdoings of our predecessors,” said the Afridi while making a jab at PML-N and PPP-led governments.
He further added that, “This communication (the meeting) will not go under the carpet. I will go and make all the (18) departments under my ministry to consult with you and address your grievances on a priority basis.”
Following that, Shehryar Khan Afridi met with the Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali in Karachi. They discussed the creation of making a national criminal database. Sources say that they reached an agreement.
The State Minister noted that the Provincial Government, police force, and Rangers had all contributed towards bringing back peace to Karachi.
He reassured the Sindh CM of the Federal Government’s absolute cooperation when it comes to regulating and thwarting criminal acts in Sindh.
