Karachi: Sindh Governor Dr Ishrat Ul Ebad Khan has said that the coalition parties fully support the measures of the law enforcement agencies for the restoration of peace in the metropolis.
A statement issued here on Tuesday said that he was talking to media representatives at the Governor House after a meeting of the PPP and the MQM leaders.
The governor pointed out that there was no ethnic, sectarian or religious conflict in the city or in the province.
He was of the view that there are a handful of miscreants who, after any incident, try to give it ethnic, sectarian or religious colour in order to serve their ulterior motives.
The governor said that in the recent incidents in the metropolis, activists belonging to Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM), Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and Awami National Party (ANP) lost their lives.
Dr Ebad said that coalition parties have decided to constitute a joint committee which should be active at the local level and after every incident will play its role and expose such conspirators.
He said that in today’s meeting it was decided that all the coalition parties would work together and that full action would be taken against the miscreants.
PPP leader Senator Faisal Raza Abidi said that there was no dispute between the PPP and the MQM. The killing of human beings in the city was tragic and that only an inhuman element can be involved in such incidents, he added.
He said that the law enforcement agencies should apprehend such elements and that media should also expose them.
MQM leader Dr Sagheer Ahmed said that miscreants are trying to create misunderstandings but the coalition parties would jointly fail such attempts and nobody would be allowed to mar the situation in the city.
He said that the law enforcement agencies should take indiscriminate action against the miscreants.
