Opposition slams Ghani for remarks against Karachiites

29

The ‘anti-Karachiites’ remarks made by Sindh Minister Saeed Ghani attracted a strong reaction from opposition parties and civil society on Wednesday, who described his comment as a reflection of the ‘feudal mindset’ of the ruling Pakistan Peoples Party, compelling the senior member to tender an apology for his uncalled-for comment.

While apologising for his comments, Minister Ghani again insisted that the people of Karachi did not fulfil their own responsibilities but only blamed the government for different problems in the metropolis.

It was on Tuesday when Mr Ghani while addressing members of the Korangi Association of Trade and Industry held the people of Karachi responsible for the fast deteriorating city infrastructure, non-existence of civic services and growing crimes in the metropolis.

Mr Ghani claimed that the people of Karachi usually dented the city infrastructure by themselves, attacked civic services and failed to follow the set rules while making ‘hue and cry’ and exaggerating the issues only to create an impression about a worst situation in the city.
