ISLAMABAD: Law Enforcement Minister Naseem has said that the implementation of Article 149 Four in Karachi has not yet been decided, only suggested, the final decision will be made by the federal cabinet.
Talking exclusively to private TV, Law Minister Barrister Farogh Naseem said that his statement was broadcast in wrong manner yesterday in the media. There was no decision on implementation of Article 149 (Four) in Karachi.

The law minister said that implementation of Article 149 Four in Karachi would be mandatory for the province, if Sindh government resisted it would refer to the Supreme Court under Federal Article 184 Third and Article 149 Four and 140A. Implement any such initiative aimed at strengthening the municipalities in Karachi.
