Islamabad: Responding to the point of order‚ Interior Minister Ch Nisar Ali Khan Wednesday said that the Karachi operation is continuing successfully with cooperation of all political parties including MQM.

Responding to the point of order raised by Leader of the Opposition about the boycott of proceedings of Senate by the opposition‚ Interior Minister Chaudhary Nisar Ali Khan said a few days back the opposition members in the Senate raised objections to the answer relating to the number of casualties occurred in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa due to acts of terrorism.

He said he rechecked the figures with the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa government who have maintained that the figures are accurate.

He said a committee of the opposition should be constituted to check the conduct of the opposition members on that particular day.

The Interior Minister said that his conduct in the House has been according to the norms of Parliament and he has never used any un-parliamentary word or ridiculed anybody in the Upper House. He said he is fully accountable and answerable to the elected House.

Responding to the point of order of MQM leader Dr. Farooq Sattar‚ Interior Minister Chaudhary Nisar Ali Khan said the government is closely watching and monitoring the ongoing targeted operation in Karachi.

He said the recent incidents ahead of Muharramul Haram were a conspiracy but we are determined to control the situation. We are fully aware of those behind these incidents which are not related to Shia-Sunni differences.

He said the Karachi operation is continuing successfully with the cooperation of all political parties including MQM. He said the federal government is extending all possible support to the provincial government for maintenance of law and order in the provincial capital.

He said he will meet with the delegation of MQM on Saturday to address their concerns.
