Old Karachi has been revived: Sindh CM

(INP): Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah has said that the old Karachi which was known for its peace and prosperity has been revived by organizing a successful mega event of PSL and now the Old Pakistan has to be restored.

He was addressing a press conference here at the Old Assembly building. He was flanked by Minister Local Government Saeed Ghani and his Advisor on Information Murtaza Wahab.

He said that in Old Pakistan the government ministers used to talk about the people and their problems but surprisingly in `new Pakistan’ all these ethics have vanished away and now they [federal ministers] were using unethical language and saying “they would listen to screams of people because they know how to suppress the masses.

“Yes! Under your rule [fed govt] people are screaming against unprecedented price hike, people are crying against unemployment and people are screaming against NAB,” Mr Shah said and added the provincial government was facing a shortfall of Rs120 billion in federal transfers [funds] and “yes! People of Sindh are screaming because work on their development schemes a has to come to standstill for want of funds. “Therefore people of this country need Old Pakistan,” he said.

He said that in New Pakistan Speaker of Sindh Assembly was arrested from Islamabad and then his family was made hostage for eight hours in Karachi. “When you had no evidence against the speaker why did you arrest him,” he asked.

Actually, the anti-corruption was a provincial subject but the federal government has grabbed these powers under the garb of NAB. “It was unfortunate that the PPP and PML-N governments in the center failed to undo the NAB law during their tenure,” he said.

The chief minister said that the PSL was the biggest event in the history of this city in which eight matches of international level, including the Final one, were played here because Karachi was now a peaceful city. “The peace has not returned here with mere lips services but it has been restored after a lot of sacrifices rendered by the personnel of law enforcement agencies and people of Karachi who faced terrorism and terrorism-like situation for around 25 years and sacrificed their dear and near ones.

He congratulated the people of Karachi for hosting such a mega event in the city and appreciated the divisional and district administration, the KMC, the DMCs, the police, the Rangers and other agencies for working day and night to make the event successful.

He also told the newsmen that the tragic incident of New Zealand where 50 Muslims were killed in two mosques was quite painful. Out of 50 causalities, nine belonged to Pakistan, of them three were Karachiites. “Today, I went to their homes and offered condolence with their families,” he said and added he was satisfied that their aggrieved family members spirit was high.

Shah reiterated the stance of his party leadership, particularly of Bilawal Bhutto Zardari who emphasized on the need of implementing National Action Plan in true letter and spirit. “He (chairman PPP) is absolutely right in his narrative that amongst us we have to identify and ward off people who are in hand and in gloves with the terrorist,” he said. He added that in terrorism we have lost 70,000 innocent lives and Pakistan was the biggest victim of terrorism, therefore NAP must be implemented.

The chief minister said that some people usually were talking against Chairman PPP because he was adamant to remove those who were supporting terrorism.

The chief minister said that there was zero tolerance for terrorists as far as Sindh government was concerned. Recently, an increase in target killing incidents was noticed in the city because MQM-London had stepped up its terrorist activities in Karachi but “our police and Rangers busted their gang,” he said.
