KARACHI: Interior Minister Rehman Malik has said that political parties need to take concerted efforts to engender peace in the economic hub city Karachi in the larger national interest.

“There is no blame game, we need coordination with all the allied parties to restore peace and police and rangers are playing their respective role,” Malik said while addressing the media at Jinnah International Terminal on arrival from Bhutan.

The minister said he was optimistic that the recently appointed Provincial Home Minister Manzoor Wassan was capable to tackle the issues regarding law and order.

To a question about the law and order situation in the province and particularly Karachi, the Minister said that a special meeting has been convened in this regard here on Monday afternoon.
