ANP senators demanded that the government hand over Karachi to the army.

ISLAMABAD: ANP senators on Thursday demanded that the government hand over Karachi to the army to restore law and order, and ensure the protection of Pakhtuns.

While speaking on the senate floor, ANP senators Haji Adeel, Ilyas Bilour and JUI-F senator Azam Swati claimed that the law and order situation in Karachi has gone out of hand.

They alleged that the provincial government has completely failed to bring things under control.

MQM senators staged a walk out from the house in protest of killings in Karachi.

Senator Tahir Mashadi said that Interior Minister Rahman Malik had committed to arrest the killers of Raza Haider but had not done so.

The house also decided to hold a debate on the role and performance of NGOs in the country after various senators criticised them.

    well it is true that the situation in karachi is out of the control of the karachi police and rangers …….. while rangers is not working to that extent, that the interior minister wanted them to do ….. army is the only available solution for the restoration of peace for a longer period in karachi… Recommend
