SHIKARPUR: Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah said on Sunday that the centre was doing injustice with the province, criticising the PTI government over the handling of gas outage.
“Sindh is giving entire country 70% of its gas, but gas supply to the province was suspended which is highhandedness,” he was talking to newsmen at Jagan village after expressing condolence over the death of PPP Sindh council member Sardar Wahid Bux Bhayo.
CM Murad was accompanied by Imtiaz Shaikh and others. He said: “If such things continue, the PPP will not sit silently.”
He said: “People are talking that RO plants are dysfunctional in Thar. During our tenure, some faults developed, but 80% of RO plants were still made functional.”
He claimed that his government had done better for healthcare in the province. He cited the example of establishing NICVD satellite centres in some parts of the province where free services were provided.
The chief minister said that the operation against encroachments in Karachi was done on the direction of Supreme Court which was directly given to the KMC.
While talking to newsmen in Garhi Khuda Bux, he also said those who cannot work are always talking against the 18th Amendment.
He reviewed arrangements for holding the 11th death anniversary commemoration of martyred PPP chairperson Benazir Bhutto. Shah said he would not say anything about Faisal Vawda because “our friendship is very new”.
He said Vawda was a new politician and he needed to learn more. He said the 18th Amendment was applauded across the world as it was unanimously passed by the parliament with the consent of all political parties.
The chief minister said: “Those who cannot work are always talking against the 18th Amendment. Chief Justice of Pakistan himself expressed his desire to visit Thar and I had also inquired that if he likes, then I can go there with him. Two other judges of the Supreme Court also accompanied him.”
Shah said that the water commission was working in Sindh since last two years and its judicial orders were being implemented.
