The governor brushed aside all allegations and advised Kamal to ‘consult a psychiatrist’. He termed Kamal “an incredibly dishonorable man.”
Furthermore, he alleged that the Pakistan Sarzameen Party chief indulged in massive corruption during his tenure as Karachi mayor. He said that Kamal had ruined the city.
Praising the Rangers, the governor said the force is performing in a professional manner and the city is now free from 80 percent of crimes. No criminal including those involved in Baldia Factory fire will be spared, he added.
He further added that those who perpetrated the May 12 carnage in Karachi will be brought to justice at all costs.
Talking about the China cutting in the metropolis, he said the government has been taking action against elements behind China cutting in the city.
