In a tweet, the prime minister said he had noticed violence against peaceful protests against local government laws in Sindh.

The prime minister further said that he has summoned the Home Minister, Chief Secretary of Sindh and the Inspector General (IG) Police for the report. Imran Khan assured that upon receipt of these reports, necessary action will be taken against those responsible.

The MQM workers had staged a sit-in protest in front of the Sindh CM House against the Sindh local government act. Due to the sit-in, the traffic system was badly disrupted and the citizens faced severe difficulties.

Chief Minister of Sindh Syed Murad Ali Shah has also telephoned Amin-ul-Haque and expressed grief over killing of MQM-P worker during a protest.

Murad Ali Shah, during conversation, said that such incident are not acceptable under any circumstances and assured the MQM-P leader of comprehensive inquiry of the incident.

CM Sindh said that post mortem will reveal the reason behind the death of the worker and a strict action will be taken against anyone found involved in the unfortunate incident.

Inviting Amin Ulhaq to hold talks on the Provincial Local Institutions Act, the Chief Minister said that all political differences should be resolved through talks and other political channels.
