KARACHI:


Prime Minsiter Nawaz Sharif should take immediate steps to nab those involved in heinous crimes as the entire country is suffering from the deteriorating law and order situation in Karachi.


This was said by a senior minister of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa and Jamaat-i -Islami leader, Sirajul Haq, while speaking at a programme at the Karachi Press Club, on Monday. “After the May11 elections, we hoped the law and order situation would improve but the scenario has become worse.” He urged the central government and the provincial governments to step up and unite on a one-point agenda to save democracy.

Prolonged load-shedding, abject poverty, increased lawlessness and the deteriorating law and order situation in the country have discouraged people.

I could not understand what message he wants to convey to people of Pakistan. Does he thinks there is no crime in KPK where 100 tons of explosive was discovered last week, has he forgotten discovery of 1000 tons of explosive in quetta ? Dear Minister please go back to your KPK.
