SANGHAR - PML-N President Nawaz Sharif has said peace in Karachi will not be possible without 'ruthless accountability and urged government to end its corruption and spend on masses. Addressing a press conference here, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) chief said the criminals in Karachi should be taken to task without any discrimination, and underlined the need for an across-the-board accountability for sustainable peace in the city. Nawaz said that the criminals were 'in front of us and if they were not punished, the situation in Karachi will deteriorate. He said the rulers must reform themselves and provide justice to the people He also said that the arrested accused have pleaded guilty and many others will follow; therefore, no more time should be wasted in announcing their punishments. He said by making controversial statements and blaming others one could not befool the masses as they were well aware of those responsible for deteriorating law and order situation in Karachi. Answering a question, he said that national wealth should be spent on public welfare rather than giving protocol, security and privileges to elected members and rewarding the selected few. He said that government should curb the rampant corruption in all the state-owned organisations and Prime Ministers discretionary fund of Rs29 billion should be used for the welfare of the deserving people instead of giving benefits to selected people. He also demanded that the flood-affected families should be given Rs100,000 each immediately. The former prime minister said the government should come forwards with seriousness to help the rain victims in Sindh and Balochistan and utilise its own resources rather than waiting for international assistance. The government must bring its corruption to an end and spend peoples money for their welfare. Nawaz said that lip service was not enough to deal with the widespread devastation caused by rains and flash floods and required concrete steps to remove their hardships and concerns. He alleged that the entire rural Sindh had been neglected by the former successive governments and no change in living standard of people of the province has occurred since the creation of Pakistan. Nawaz Sharif said he would continue to raise his voice for the people of Sindh, adding that the PML-N had always stood with the victims of natural calamities and it would let no stone unturned to remove hardships of people of Sindh and Balochistan. He said Jam Sadiq Ali was his friend and he would continue to visit Jam Masooq Ali, the son of the late Sindhi leader.
