KARACHI: Sindh Governor Imran Ismail has said that providing a safe and peaceful environment to the people is the top-most responsibility of the provincial government.

In a letter written recently to Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah, he said the federal government had a clear stance that supremacy of the law would be maintained at every cost, and legal action should be taken against all those creating a law and order situation in the country.

The governor was of the view that some elements had been staging unjustified protests and sit-ins in all major cities of the country, including Karachi.

“I understand that the law enforcement agencies are facing challenges in maintaining peace because of these circumstances,” he said. Imran Ismail said the federal government was fully committed to effectively tackling all challenges, for which all-out efforts were being made.

Third wave of coronavirus

The governor, in his letter, also mentioned the lethality of the coronavirus and said its third wave had badly affected the masses and the federal and provincial governments were utilising all available resources to stem the spread of the virus.

Although, he said, the proportion of positive cases in Sindh was less than that of other parts of the country, more cautiousness in maintaining and improving such a stable situation was needed.

Imran Ismail said the National Command and Operation Centre was pursuing a comprehensive and unanimous strategy, in collaboration with all provinces, to stop the virus spread and extend all possible medical assistance to the affected people.

The governor said that the federal government would continue assisting the Sindh government to carry out public welfare activities and resolve the issues.
