KARACHI/ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz Senator Nehal Hashmi said on Friday that the Governor House had been purified of the last remnants of a terrorist organization.
He was speaking to journalists after the new Sindh Governor Saeed-uz-Zaman was sworn in. “The last sign of a terrorist organization has been removed from the governor house,” he said adding that 14 years ago a representative of Muttahida Qaumi Movement founder was made governor.
“Anti-Pakistan people with the help of Musharraf managed to occupy the Governor House. Now people who love PML-N are in the governor house,” he said.
He said that in the nine-year-long rule of the dictator crime, murder and target killings had increased in the city.
He added that the new governor will help maintain peace in the city. “A man who truly abides by the constitution and law has now been made governor.”
He said that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had begun an operation in Karachi three years ago.
PML-N distanced itself from Senator Nehal Hashmi’s statement turning former Sindh governor Ishrat ul Ebad’s exit into the ‘last remnants of a terrorism organization which had laid siege on the governor house’.
Speaking to journalists information minister Maryam Aurangzeb said that what Hashmi said was his personal opinion and not the party’s official statement.
