Govt has no writ in Karachi, says Magsi

HYDERABAD, July 14: Sindh Taraqqi-pasand Party chairman Dr Qadir Magsi has said the government has lost writ in Karachi and miserably failed to bring the situation under its control as the terrorists still rule the streets.

In a statement issued here on Sunday, Dr Magsi said the government had failed to restore peace to Karachi and criticised the chief minister for his statement that Lyari situation was being exploited.

He said that people of Lyari were forced to leave their ancestral homes because of serious threats to their lives while the chief minister was only making attempts to absolve himself of his responsibilities.

He said that elected representatives of Lyari were either silent or missing. The IDPs of Lyari had arrived in Badin and Thatta but the government had not taken any notice and failed to provide them relief, he said.

The PPP should take serious steps to safely shift them to their home because the party was always elected from their area, he said.

Dairy shop owners fined Revenue officials imposed on Sunday a cumulative fine of Rs84,000 on dairy shop owners, grocers and fruit sellers for overcharging.

The officials imposed the fine for violation of the price lists issued by the district administration under the Price Control and Prevention of Profiteering and Hoarding Act, 1977.

In the city and Latifabad talukas, dairy shop owners were fined Rs70,000 and Rs17,100 respectively for selling milk at Rs74 to Rs80 per kg of milk against the official rate of Rs68 per kg.
