KARACHI: Director General (DG) Rangers Sindh Major General Muhammad Saeed has rejected political engineering in Karachi.

Talking to a private TV channel, DG Rangers Sindh said, “Peace has been established in the port city after Karachi Operation with the sacrifices of LEAs and police, therefore, we do not want Karachi to return to the situation prevailing before September 2013.”

“Intelligence and Law Enforcement Agencies contact all stakeholders (political parties) for peace in Karachi,” Major General Muhammad Saeed said, adding that such contacts were a matter of routine since the Karachi Operation was launched in 2013.

He said, “Rangers are working only for peace in Karachi.”

He said PSP and MQM-P were in contact with each other for eight months, adding "it is now upto them (both parties) to do politics together or separately, there should not be violence in the city.”

Former Karachi mayor and leader of the Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP) Mustafa Kamal on Saturday said he held talks with the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) at the behest of the establishment, rejecting the impression that he was not the one who asked for talks with the MQM.

He said the establishment hosted the talks at the request of Farooq Sattar who was trying for merger of PSP with Muttahida Qaumi Movement for the last eight months.

He said dozens of meeting between MQM and PSP were held where establishment acted as an arbitrator.
