JUI-F flays govt for failure in Karachi peace

Karachi:Jamait Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) Sindh chapter general secretary Dr Khalid Mehmood Soomro has said the provincial government of Sindh has failed to give peace to Karachiites, adding Lyari is burning in violence despite the PPP rulers claim enjoying heavy mandate of Lyariites.

Talking to media at Karachi airport here Tuesday, he said there is no respite in Battha. The traders and citizens are still receiving Bhatta Parchies. He said target killers and terrorists enjoy a free hand in Karachi and role of law enforcing agencies seen nowhere. He said schoolteachers and local government department employees are taking to streets for pending salaries, but the rulers are hosting mega Iftar parties from the taxpayers’ money.

He said more than 1700 people have died in Karachi target killing in just last six months, which is enough to comment on the failure of PPP government. He demanded seriousness in the corridors of power to solve the Karachi issue and give the citizens of this mega urban city peace and safety of life and property.
