Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah criticised the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) for demanding a separate province and said that the people talking about dividing Sindh want to break Pakistan.
Addressing a ceremony after inaugurating a bridge in Younisabad on Monday, Shah said that Sindh and Pakistan are inseparable. The people talking about breaking Sindh will not get anything, he added.
He further said that the government is aware of water shortage and the affected areas will be provided with 1,200 water tankers.
“Politics of water and electricity is not right,” he said.
The chief minister said that the government wants to make the city better and all resources are being utilised in this regard.
The chief minister said that he had sanctioned Rs 220 million for developmental work of the city.
“It is our character that we envisage the schemes and plans, release funds, start work and then inform the public about the steps taken by the Pakistan People’s Party government for their convenience. Please stop this water politics,” he urged.
He said that the KMC has improved their performance but it was not enough. They have to further improve and strengthen themselves, he said.
Earlier, the chief minister laid foundation stone of ‘Reconstruction of Younisabad Bridge at Hawksbay Y-junction’. The cost of this KMC project comes to Rs 194.815 million and it would be completed within six months. The total length of the bridge and roads make 1.7 kilometres.
Just after inauguration of the bridge, the naval commanders led the chief minister to lay foundation stone of 500,000 gallon reverse osmosis plant at Manora.
