When else would banners be put up if not during election campaigns, asked MQM leader Faisal Subzwari.
“Banners and hoardings are allowed for campaigns across the country but not in Karachi,” he said. “The law is different for Karachi.”
According to Subzwari, party workers are being harassed. “The caretaker government, on the pretext of Election Commission’s code of conduct, wants to impose a curfew on July 25,” he said. “Our flags and banners are being taken down. Police and other law enforcement personnel are visiting the offices of our candidates.”
