KARACHI

Pres­i­dent Asif Ali Zar­dari on Wed­nes­day held one-on-one meet­ing with Sindh Chief Min­is­ter Syed Qaim Ali Shah here in Karachi and dis­cussed the cur­rent po­lit­i­cal and lawand-or­der sit­u­a­tion in the province.

Ac­cord­ing to me­dia re­ports, they ex­changed views over Sindh na­tion­al­ists’ strike call for Novem­ber 30 (Fri­day) against re­cently in­tro­duced lo­cal government sys­tem which drew con­dem­na­tion from var­i­ous par­ties, in­clud­ing former PPP al­lies in Sindh – Awami Na­tional Party and Pir Pa­gara’s Pak­istan Mus­lim League-Func­tional (PML-F).

In the wake of Fri­day’s province-wide strike, the pres­i­dent has re­port­edly di­rected the CM to es­tab­lish con­tacts with all the po­lit­i­cal forces op­pos­ing Sindh Peo­ple Lo­cal Government Or­di­nance (SPLGO). Shah also briefed the pres­i­dent over law and or­der sit­u­a­tion in Sindh, es­pe­cially in Karachi where the Supreme Court of Pak­istan has been hear­ing a case re­gard­ing un­rest in the metropo­lis, the hub of Pak­istan’s eco­nomic ac­tiv­i­ties.
