Will curb street crime like terrorism, says Sindh CM

KARACHI: Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah said on Tuesday that his government will curb street crimes just like “terrorism was eliminated” from the city.

Speaking to media on the event of Quaid-e-Azam’s 70th death anniversary, he said: “Incidents of street crime have increased in the metropolis in the last few months but we are working towards a policy to eradicate crime in the city.”

“Just as we have successfully curbed terrorism in the city, we will control crime,” He added.

The provincial chief minister also clarified Pakistan People’s Party’s (PPP) position on the construction of Diamer-Bhasha dam that the party had proposed the dam and was not opposing it.

“We are not opposing the construction of the Diamer-Bhasha Dam, we just say they are facing technical issues,” he said without delving into details regarding the technical issues.

Answering questions pertaining to the Baldia factory fire case, he said that there is still development taking place in the case.

“Criminals will be brought to justice,” he added.


Moreover, Sindh Governor Imran Ismail who was also present at Quaid’s mausoleum to pay respects said, there are 5000 dams in China, 2000 in India whereas Pakistan has just 154 dams.

He added, “Out of these 154 dams, there are only two big dams.”

Further, he said, “The water issue is not just an issue of one city but it is an issue for the entire country.”

He added, “The water issue is not just an issue of one city but it is an issue for the entire country.”

He also appealed to the Sindh government to contribute towards the dam fund.
