Days of ‘terrorists reign’ in Karachi gone: Sindh CM

KARACHI: Sindh Chief Minister (CM) Murad Ali Shah on Saturday asserted that no ‘terrorist’ can now shut down Karachi, drawing out a comparison between the law and order situation in city during 2008 and in 2022.

Addressing candidates vying for local government (LG) elections, the Sindh chief minister noted that businesses were forced to close across the metropolis in 2008, regretting that it was ranked the sixth worst city in the world in terms of law and order.

“When Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) came into power, it restored law and order in Karachi,” CM Murad Ali Shah claimed.

He also criticised the previous federal government, claiming that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf-led (PTI) did not spend a single penny on the provincial capital. “They (PTI) had neglected the city,” he said, lambasting the Imran Khan-led party for ‘just making tall claims’.

CM Murad maintained that now no ‘terrorist’ can shut down Karachi, adding that the development and prosperity of the provincial capital was being carried out and the PPP would change the city.

The Sindh chief minister also vows to curb the rising street crimes in the city, vowing that his party would never let down the citizens. “The right to rule the city belongs only to Pakistan People’s Party (PPP),” he added.
