Lyari, a suburban area of Karachi, has always been a PPP stronghold. In recent past people of Lyari became Fed-up of PPP's empty promises and showed signs of a political revolt against PPP. This was not acceptable to the leadership of PPP and an operation was started under the command of Chaudhry Aslam, SSP CID. Mr. Aslam has a reputation for serving his political bosses and carrying out extra judicial killings on instructions of political leaders. The aim of this operation is to wipe out PAC which has become Anti-PPP after PPP failed to do any development work in Lyari. PPP wants full control of Lyari and thats why they did not tolerate dissent. This operation for political motives was carried out behind the smokescreen of eleminating Gangsters.
This operation has inflicted a lot of damage on the poor people of Lyari. The food, water and electricity supply was cut-off during the days of operation and electricity supply has not been restored yet. This led to humanitarian problems as people have to live without these necessities for 8 days. Moreover Welfare aid organiztaions such as Edhi trust were not allowed to deliver food to the people of Lyari. This is injustice at its peak and done by the so-called democratic government of PPP. How the people of Lyari have suffered can't be explained in words but through videos:
Following is a video clip from CNBC program AWAM KE SAMNAY, whose hostess dared to enter Lyari when operation was in full swing:
