KARACHI:

Prime Minister Syed Yousaf Raza Gilani on Saturday said the army will not be called in Karachi, as political forces in Karachi have shown maturity to resolve issues.


Gilani made these comments in a press briefing, following a meeting on Karachi's security situation at the Chief Minister House.


The prime minister said that all stakeholders had been involved in reaching a consensus on a code of conduct for eliminating terrorism and extremism in Karachi.


The situation in Karachi has returned to normal and work has resumed at nearly every commercial center, retail and wholesale market. Industrial units have also started working.


The security situation in Orangi Town, however, is still tense.


More than 90 people were killed, and as many as 200 were injured in the violence ensuing after the assassination of MQM MPA Raza Haider on August 2, 2010.


Property worth billions was vandalised and damaged in the unrest.
