MQM-P threatens to quit federal govt


rise in street crimes
Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) Senator Faisal Subzwari Tuesday said his party will quit the federal government if the people of the port city continue to be killed amid the rise in street crimes across Karachi. Lamenting the 15-year-long rule of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) in the province, the MQM-P senator said the demands for an operation would have come forward if such killings were happening elsewhere. “If our people continue to be killed, we will leave the government,” he said, speaking with journalists in Karachi.

Karachi has been gripped by street crimes claiming the lives of dozens of citizens who have fallen victim at the hands of criminals for the past few weeks.

Many have been killed while resisting robberies and snatching incidents, particularly in the month of Ramadan during which criminals seem to have been let loose.
