GWADAR: The security of Gwadar would be completely given to the police and Levies Force in the next three to four months, said Commander of XII Corps Lt Gen Asif Ghafoor.Â
“The armed forces will be confined to their stations and troops will not be seen in the city in future,” he said at a gathering in Gwadar.
The Quetta corps commander said Chief of Army Staff Asim Munir would also visit the port city soon. During his visit, Mr Ghafoor met leaders of political parties, journalists, businessmen and citizens at the Gwadar Cricket Stadium and held meetings with senior security forces officials.
He asked the Jamaat-i-Islami emir in Gwadar, Maulana Liaquat, to meet all the councillors of the cityâ€™s municipal committee on Friday morning to discuss how the cityâ€™s woes could be addressed. The senior army officer said problems could only be resolved by working together and not through sit-ins and protests.
Lt Gen Ghafoor said a committee representing people from various walks of life should be constituted to address the problems of Gwadar. “The list of names of those to be included in the committee should be handed over to the deputy commissioner by Friday (today),” he told the gathering.
