He said that development of Karachi meant progress of the Province and the country.

Focusing on Law and Order situation in the Port City he reminded that not only the terrorists from all around the globe had converged here but also the local thugs made it their haunt. He pointed out that the people and LEA of Karachi had made most of the sacrifices to contain terrorism.
According to him due to the sacrifices of karachiites the city of lights’ milieu was now suitable for commencing projects like Peoples Square. He said that PPP respected the governments’ mandate and Sindh would be the only Province where local government would complete its term.
