Karachi: Provincial Minister for Information, Transport and Mass Transit Sharjeel Inam Memon has said that a massive crackdown is being launched across the province from today against fake number plates , unregistered vehicles and display of arms .

He said that Imran Khan is disappointed with Jail Bharo Tehreek as not a single person in Sindh ready to render arrest in jail Bharo Tehreek.
The provincial minister said that Imran Khan considers himself a world leader and has large followers and admirers in the UK and the whole world, then he should start a Jail Bharo movement in the UK as well.
