Zardari wants peace in Karachi ‘at all costs’

ISLAMABAD: President Asif Ali Zardari on Wednesday directed Interior Minister Rehman Malik and Sindh Home Minister Zulfiqar Mirza to ensure peace in Karachi “at all costs”.
He was talking to Interior Minister Rehman Malik and Sindh Home Minister Zulfiqar Mirza at the Presidency.
A source in the PPP informed Pakistan Today that the trio discussed various options to restore normalcy to the country’s financial hub. “Mirza proposed the imposition of curfew in some areas of Karachi with extended powers to the Rangers. Malik also supported the idea. However, the president dismissed the proposal and advised them to come up with a political solution, which must remain the government’s priority to restore peace to the violence-hit city,” the source added.
The meeting also considered joint operations by the Rangers and police against elements involved in targeted killings, the source said.
