Cen­tre should stop by-pass­ing Sindh govt: Khohro

Pakistan Observer - - KARACHI CITY -

KARACHI—Pak­istan is pass­ing through dif­fi­cult time and there are nu­mer­ous chal­lenges that the country is fac­ing and striv­ing for quicker rid­dance while the elected Sindh provincial gov­ern­ment is ex­tend­ing full co­op­er­a­tion to the country’s na­tional in­sti­tu­tions.

The big­gest of all the chal­lenges is the men­ace of ter­ror­ism and as well the country also has tremen­dous chal­lenges on the eco­nomic fore­front.

Sindh Se­nior Min­is­ter Nisar Ahmed Khohro said this while ad­dress­ing a sim­ple but au­gust gath­er­ing of an Iftar­cum-Din­ner hosted by the PPP leader and can­di­date for the post of Chair­man of the DMC east at a lo­cal com­mu­nity hall at P.E.C.H.S on Sun­day.

Khohro said that de­spite the fact that the Sindh gov­ern­ment has open­heart­edly wel­comes the fed­eral gov­ern­ment re­gard­ing its steps under the na­tional ac­tion plan but it is a de­plorable sit­u­a­tion that ear­lier has time and again ig­nored the con­cerns of the Sindh gov­ern­ment. The fed­eral gov­ern­ment has to re­spond to the Sindh gov­ern­ment for its vi­brant steps for the elim­i­na­tion of ter­ror­ism, main­te­nance of law and or­der and elim­i­na­tion of poverty and de­vel­op­men­tal projects in Sindh.

Speak­ing on the oc­ca­sion, Par­lia­men­tary Leader in the Sen­ate of Pak­istan, Se­na­tor Saeed Ghani said that the ba­sic of the PPP’s man­i­festo is to serve and em­power the masses and the elec­tions for the lo­cal bod­ies on com­ple­tion of its fi­nal phase would trans­late the PPP’s man­i­festo in real. He said that the de­lay in com­ple­tion of the fi­nal phase of may­oral elec­tions was from the elec­tion com­mis­sion and it would an un­demo­cratic and un­healthy trend to al­lege the PPP of Sindh gov­ern­ment for use of de­lay­ing tac­tics. The bur­den of the EC should not be thrown over the PPP or Sindh gov­ern­ment, he added.

The host of the If­tar-cum-Din­ner had ear­lier in his wel­com­ing ad­dress said that the PPP is a demo­cratic party in true sense and mean­ing and al­ways be­lieved in tak­ing all on board under all sit­u­a­tions. He said that the pres­ence of notables from all walks of life in this Iftar­cum-Din­ner is the real man­i­fest of the re­al­ity that the party main­tains the norms and val­ues of the democ­racy.

Those present in the If­tar-cumDin­ner in­cluded Rashid Hus­sain Rab­bani, Waqar Me­hdi, Habibud­din Ju­naidi, MNA Dr Shahida Rehmani, Is­rar Ab­basi and Erum But from PTI, Taufeeque Moon and Hanif Jan­gra from Ja­maat-e Is­lami and newly elected Chairmen and Vice Chairmen of DMCs and mem­bers.—NNI
