KARACHI: On Monday night, Governor Sindh Muhammad Zubair stated that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) had not sought permission to hold a rally in the metropolis’ Hakeem Saeed ground while the Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) had.
“We had made Karachi peaceful with the help of police and Rangers,” he noted, referring to how such violent events could dent the efforts to maintain and improve law and order situation.
“We shall see, as per the law, which [of the two parties] requested permission first,” he went on to say, adding that there were apparently no concerns of whether obtaining an approval from the local administration was obligatory or not.
The Governor Sindh also said that everyone around the nation witnessed how workers of both the parties fought each other. “Both parties are to be held accountable,” he emphasized.
“The PPP leaders should go to the ground to control the situation.” Zubair stated.
