Where are the Lyari protesters now. This area should be completely swept by the armed forces, whether the locals like it or not. It is infested with thugs and thieves.

I don't understand why Sindh cabinet is been expanded while nothing is done for the security of the citizens. No matter how many minister the cabinate has, so there is no honesty, sincerity and love for the country, no citizen will feel safe.Instead of paying these corrupt politicians, improve the security and infra-structure. Would please some honest politician wake-up and take care of this beautiful city. May Allah bless the city of Karachi and its helpless citizens.
