One journalist wrote:

“The Shehbaz govt wont say a word on Karachi as its survival depends on the support of PPP, MQM and those running DHA—-the ‘real state’ within real estate. Bahria is holy cow for all since it is a national benefactor. So as the city flaps in filth and misfortune all stay quiet.”

To which another user responded: “Only Imran Khan did well for Karachi.”
