KARACHI - Expressing his concerns over the killing of citizens and lawlessness in the provincial capital, Punjab Chief Minister Mian Shahbaz Sharif has urged the political parties to jointly fight for restoring peace in the city. Addressing a press conference here; he criticised the Centre and Sindh government for their failure in ensuring protection to the people. Citizens are being killed in Karachi, but the government has been dragging its feet over the matter, he said, adding that no action was taken to nab the culprits. Shahbaz demanded that the Parliament be briefed about the situation and steps should be taken to improve law and order. Earlier, the Punjab chief minister visited Badin and distributed relief goods among the flood-affected people of the district. Flanked by PML-N Sindh leaders Saleem Zia, Mushahidullah Khan, Nihal Hashmi and others, Shahbaz Sharif said the political parties should come forward to restore peace in Karachi. To a question about the deployment of Army in the city, the Punjab CM said the government should immediately take the steps necessary for the protection of citizens. In reply to another question, he said the PML-N had supported creation of new provinces on administrative basis. He said 10 or 20 provinces could be established on administrative basis. He reiterated his partys demand for formation of national commission on the issue. Replying to a question about PML-N President Mian Nawaz Sharifs demand for elections, he said the dissolution of assemblies is a right of the Parliament and demanding fresh elections is democratic right of a political party as no one makes such demands in dictatorial regime. He regretted that corruption was on the rampage. But, he added that the people would not bear more corruption of the present rulers. Shahbaz said a PML-N delegation would visit the metropolis soon to meet all stakeholders for the cause of peace. Speaking about his visit to Badin District, he informed that 30 trucks loaded of relief goods have been donated for the rain and flood victims.
