LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif has said that 70% of crimes in the country will go down if people belonging to ‘militant wings’ of the government and its coalition parties are arrested, as they “are said to be involved in various murder cases”.

Speaking to the media in Lahore on Monday, Nawaz mentioned a Supreme Court observation which stated that the parties working in Karachi have militant wings. “If government’s own parties have militant wings, how will they arrest anyone then?”

The party chief rubbished security steps taken by the government to ensure peace in Karachi and said that it keeps on blocking mobile services and banning pillion riding but, “in four years, no criminal has been arrested, punished and made an example out of for the people”.

He urged the people of Pakistan to vote wisely only for the party who they think is ambitious enough to tackle all problems of the country.

Condemns Israel attacks

Nawaz condemned the Israeli attacks on Gaza, terming them ‘barbaric’ and urged the Pakistani government to take up the matter.

“I’m glad that not only Islamic countries but non-Islamic countries also spoke against the issue,” he expressed.

“I think the United Nations should take a strong notice of it and should compel nations like Pakistan to play an effective role,” he added while terming the US stance on the issue ‘inappropriate”.

They are failed to restore peace in Karachi. the situation have badely embarrassed common man. Killing without reason by blindly firing and target killing is crossing the patience of the people of Pakistan. In such circumstance election has become indispensable.

The fact is that in result of forthcoming general election no single paty looks will appeared in crucial majority.
