ISLAMABAD: Despite orders of Prime Minster Nawaz Sharif, the Ministry of Interior failed to issue notification for annex National Aliens Registration Authority (NARA) into National Data Base Registration Authority (NADRA) till yet.
Pakistan PM ordered the annexation of NARA into NADRA while chairing law and order meeting in Karachi last month.
The move was taken to scrutinise and data collection of foreigners in the country.
Nawaz Sharif had taken the decision to control crime in the country in general and in Karachi as particular. However one and half month has been passed but notification in this regard could not be issued.
Due to this the NADRA could not be able to take practical steps.
It is pertinent to mention here that more than 4 million foreign nationals of Bangladesh, Myanmar, Africans, Arabs and others have been residing in the country.
