    Every wrong doer is welcomed in Karachi to interrupt law and order. I think the law enforcing agencies are not performing their duties well. Why Karachi is always on receiving end when there is any incident??

    PPP and its partners failed to bring peace because of lack of courage and will.

    They don’t deserve even a single vote.
