Karachi violence: PTI calls for a ‘governor’s rule’

PTI chairman says statements of Zulfiquar Mirza should be taken seriously.

September 06, 2011


Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan called for imposition of the “governor’s rule” in Karachi as the only solution to the city’s problems in the current situation.

Addressing a press conference, Khan questioned whether the administration and law enforcement agencies were effective in Karachi. The PTI chairman said that statements of Zulfiquar Mirza should be taken seriously. According to him, the accusations of Mirza were directly related to the integrity and stability of the country. Khan claimed that the PPP, MQM and ANP all had their full-fledged functional armed wings in Karachi, hence only an impartial governor rule with a powerful administration could restore peace.

@Salman Orangiwala: Imran have no power in Karachi situation. He could not do anything until he get people of Pakistan full support. I think Imran is the only Leader who can resolve Karachi's problem. He has condemned all this massacre and killing and also sugested best solution.

Freeman | 10 years ago | Reply @Khan: There is much difference in Balochistana nd Karachi's situation. Balochistan have a different problem and can be tackaled differently with political dialogues. Where also govenment must have will to resolve problem. Police is also recruited by these 3 parties and msotly police is corrupt and criminals. All 3 parties are trying to control Karachi. Killing innocent people every day. I think Imran is right and it does make sense and we should understand his point of view. We support Imrans suggestion.
