KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) Convener Dr Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui said that “non-local” police and administration were imposed on the port city, terming it an injustice for the people, The News reported Friday. 

Speaking during an iftar-dinner organised by the party’s labour wing in North Nazimabad, the politician said that Karachi had non-local police, terming it an injustice for the people of the city. 

Siddiqui said that other urban centres of Sindh had their own residents in government and state institutions, questioning why there was a non-local police force in the capital city of the province.

“As a nation, we are undergoing different political phases, and non-local police and administration have been imposed on us. However, the MQM-P has once again taken back the mandate of the urban areas of the province from the non-locals,” said Siddiqui. 

Amid the rising street crimes in Karachi which have resulted in the deaths of several youngsters, Siddiqui said that young people belonging to the city were being killed in street crime by “ghair maqami” (non-local) bandits.

“In the month of Ramadan, young people of the city are being mercilessly martyred by non-local bandits,” said the MQM-P leader. 

He further said that the “racist” government of Sindh was given a free hand, adding that his party had been silent in the month of Ramadan, however, it will speak on the death of the city’s youth at the hands of non-local bandits.

Siddiqui stressed that the MQM-P would not hesitate to make any sacrifice even if it meant taking to the streets for the honour of women. The event was also attended by the party’s ad-hoc organising committee members Anis Qaimkhani, MNAs, MPAs, party office-bearers and workers.
