MQM and PPP wish Rangers not to Stay in Sindh - Imran Khan
Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan alleged Tuesday that the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) stand as hindrance in the paramilitary Rangers to stay in Sindh.

“People want the Rangers to stay in Sindh for protection [of life and property] but the corrupt and target killers want the paramilitary force to leave,” he said, while addressing a rally in Lodhran as part of the upcoming by-election in NA-154 on Tuesday.
Moreover, the PTI chief agreed of PPP’s reservations that the anti-corruption drive should go across the board into other provinces that Sindh itself.
“The PPP has been asking if there was corruption in Punjab. They have been demanding accountability across the board…I think Punjab’s turn will only come once the PTI forms the federal government,” he said.
About National Assembly Speaker National Assembly Ayaz Sadiq, Imran said he was glad the former had finally realised that the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) did not function properly.
“If the ECP were working properly, it would have initiated an investigation into invalid and illegal votes cast in NA-122 constituency,” Imran said.
Imran said the prime minister couldn’t ‘buy’ the people of Lodhran with his Rs2.5 billion Kissan package, adding his party would win the by-elections if the polls are free and fair.
“Jahangir Tareen and Aleem Khan are two leaders of my party I take pride in,” he added.
