KARACHI - Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz Sindh chapter President Syed Ghous Ali Shah on Sunday snubbed the PPP, ANP and MQM over the brewing security situation in Karachi, and appealed for peace and rest.

Addressing a news conference at the PML-N House, Ghous Shah expressed his apprehensions over the deteriorating law and order situation, saying the government had no right to rule the country if it was not capable of maintaining peace. PML-N Sindh Secretary General Saleem Zia, former minister Irfanullah Marwat, Israr Mashwani, Ali Akbar Gujar, Dr Taj and others were present on the occasion.

Asserting that maintenance of law and order was the prime responsibility of the government, the PML-N leader asked the rulers to step down if they were not able to restore peace.

Condemning the drone attacks, he said the government should pressurise the United States to stop such strikes. Saleem Zia said the government had completely failed to preserve peace in Karachi. On the occasion, a delegation of Burki Tribe, led by Dilawar Khan Mehsud, announced to join the PML-N along with all its members.
