KARACHI: After industrialists and traders, now the public transporters have demanded that the government hand Karachi over to the army.
The Anjuman-e-Ettehad Bus Malikan and Karachi Transport Action Committee leaders, Muhammad Ashraf Banglori, Chaudhry Mazhar Hussain and other leaders expressed grave concern on the rule of terror and bloodshed in Karachi.
They said that the police and Rangers have proved ineffective at controlling the situation. The hijacking of public transport vehicles and killings of drivers, transport workers and commuters has become an everyday affair in Karachi. According to them calling in the army is the last option to save the citizens.
