Pakistan Muslim League–N (PML-N) President Mian Nawaz Sharif on Wednesday expressed severe concerns over the volatile situation of Karachi, claiming that those political parties present in Sindh Assembly have militant wings.

Talking to media after a meeting with senior politicians of Sindh headed by Liaquat Ali Jatoi, Nawaz Sharif said that the judiciary took the names of those parties who are in the provincial government and own militant wings in Karachi.

Sharif discussed the Karachi unrest and other issues with PML-N Sindh leaders including Ghous Ali Shah, Mamnoon Hussain, Liaqat Jatoi, Marvi Memon, Salim Zia, Ameer Hussain Bhutto and others.

The PML-N chief discussed matters related to law and order situation in Karachi, mainly the target killing incidents.

He said that the PML-N will continue to raise voice against the local bodies system adding that the government is doing injustice by ignoring Sindh. “Sindh is governed with tyranny.”

Sharif said that President Zardari already tried to weaken the Punjab government.

While criticising the federal government, Nawaz Sharif said that Asif Zardari, in the very first year of his tenure, had stepped forward to paralyse the Punjab government but every attempt to weaken democracy was foiled.

He added that PML-N is a national party and its presence in all the provinces is a symbol of unity.

He announced to run a full-fledged election campaign across Sindh.

Responding to queries regarding the construction of Kala Bagh dam, Sharif said that the dam should not be constructed until all the provinces have consensus on the subject.
