Federation should take control of Karachi: Law Minister Farogh


Islamabad: The Federal Minister of Law and Justice, Farogh Naseem has given an insight into the current situation of Karachi. He declared here on Wednesday that the Karachi administration could be much better if certain reforms should be planned and acted upon.

According to him, “the Federation must take the administrative control of Karachi city for better administration.”

It was earlier when Farogh Naseem was quoted by the media as saying about Article 149(4) of Pakistan. He stated that “Neither does Article 149(4) speak of governor rule, nor of imposing an emergency.”

He went on saying that “It is an independent article, which says that the federal government has an executive authority under which it can issue directives to any provincial government if there are issues pertaining to peace, tranquility and economic life. The executive authority of the Federation shall also extend to the giving of directions to a province as to the manner in which the executive authority thereof is to be exercised for the purpose of preventing any grave menace to the peace or tranquility or economic life of Pakistan or any part thereof.”

He surfaced that fact that Karachi has been suffering poor environmental crises for the past 11 years and no one pays heed to these crises.

“There is nothing there except garbage, shortage of water and flies,” he added.
