Supremacy of law to be maintained at all costs, says governor

Karachi

April 18, 2021

Sindh Governor Imran Ismail has said providing a safe and peaceful environment to the people is a top responsibility of the provincial government.

In a letter written to Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah the other day, he said the federal government had a clear stance that supremacy of the law would be maintained at every cost, and legal action should be ensured against all those a creating law and order situation in the country.

The governor was of the view that some elements had been staging unjustified protests and sit-ins in all major cities of the country, including Karachi.

“I understand that the law enforcement agencies are facing challenges in maintaining peace because of these circumstances,” he said.

Ismail said the federal government was fully committed to effectively tackling all the confronted challenges, for which all-out efforts were being made. The governor, in his letter, also mentioned the lethality of the coronavirus and said its third wave had badly affected the masses, but the federal and provincial governments were utilising all available resources to stem the spread of the virus.

Although, he said, the proportion of positive cases in Sindh was not much as compared to other parts of the country, there needed more pro-activeness and cautiousness in maintaining and improving such a stable situation. Ismail said the National Command and Operation Centre was pursuing a comprehensive and unanimous strategy, in collaboration with all provinces, to stop the virus spread and extend all possible medical assistance to the affected people.

The governor assured that the federal government would continue assisting the Sindh government in carrying out public welfare activities and resolve the confronted issues.

He said he would continue fulfilling his constitutional responsibilities as governor for the development and prosperity of the people, and providing all kinds of assistance and cooperation between the federal and provincial governments.
