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.
