Homeless flood affectees must be given Rs 100 thousand rather than measly Rs 10 thousand, said PML-N Chief Nawaz Sharif – File Photo

KARACHI: Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif on Friday said all political parties with militant wings must be banned, DawnNews reported.

Speaking to media representatives in Daulatpur village, Mr Sharif said everyone was fully aware of those political parties that have military wings.

“Parties involved in extortion have been revealed now...Karachi was a peaceful city and its peace was deliberately destroyed,” said the PML-N chief on Karachi’s law and order situation.

He further said that the government had all the resources to resolve most of the issues but those resources had been wasted. “It will be interesting to see how many excuses this government can come up with,” Mr Sharif added.

He moreover said that people who returned ‘black money’ were still holding key posts, adding that the government was spending people’s money on its luxuries rather than using the capital to eradicate their sufferings. “Rs 29 billion that the prime minister possesses must be spent on the public,” Mr Sharif suggested.

Homeless flood affectees must be given Rs 100 thousand rather than measly Rs 10 thousand, he added.

The party chief said 646 trucks loaded with flood relief goods had been sent from Punjab province for the flood affectees.
