Altaf Hussain has asked the government to remove containers from Lahore as they go against the democratic right of the people to free movement. I fully agree with him, and the PML-N government has unnecessarily put the lives of innocent people at risk. If only Altaf Hussain had given the same advice to the Sindh government on May 12, 2007, 50 people would not have lost their lives and 50 families would not have been deprived of their bread earners. Incidentally, no action has been taken against his party activists who were clearly seen in action on TV cameras.

KHURSHID ANWER,
