Sindh Governor Imran Ismail on Saturday visited the mausoleum of the first Prime Minister of Pakistan Shaheed Liaquat Ali Khan on the occasion of his 70th birth anniversary.

He also laid a wreath on his grave and offered Fateha. Members of Sindh Assembly Firdous Shamim Naqvi, Dr Imran Ali Shah, Saeed Afridi, Raja Azhar and PTI leader Saifullah Niazi were also present on the occasion.

Later, talking to the media, the Sindh governor said that Shaheed Liaquat Ali Khan had fully supported Quaid-e-Azam, but he was martyred by anti-national elements in a function in Rawalpindi.

“Even today, his martyrdom is a dark chapter in the political history of Pakistan. The city of Karachi has been seen plunging in killings and bloodshed for more than 20 years but thanks to the immense sacrifices of the security agencies, Karachi is once again becoming a city of lights,” he observed.

Replying to a question, the governor said that Pakistan was one of the countries selling petrol at the lowest price.

The government is aware of this and has not imposed any new tax. It will make a difference here as well, he added.

Replying to another question, he said that the Sindh government was not cooperating; otherwise, health cards could be brought to the province.

“On Monday, I will talk to the Chief Minister on wheat and request him to set up vigilance committees.

The flour in Sindh should not be more than 50 per kg, but it is up to the provincial government to control the price through DCs or any other relevant authority,” the governor concluded.
