-Mega corruption done through hospitals in Sindh, claims Haleem Adil
KARACHI: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Sindh chapter General Secretary and parliamentary party leader in Sindh Assembly Haleem Adil has said that it is yet to been if the long march planned by Sindh’s ruling party would be a long march or a short march.
Addressing a press conference outside the Sindh Assembly here on Wednesday, Haleem Adil said that Zardari junior has threatened of a long march but when these people would go to the streets, the people of Sindh would surely ask them why destroyed the province.
The PTI leader said that we have seen that a “prince” went to visit the Gambat Institute of Medical and Health Sciences in a convoy of 30 vehicles and added that the hospital is getting billions of rupees from taxpayers’ money.
“Modern machinery has been purchased for it but there is no trained staff to run it. In the first liver transplant surgery here, both the patient and his donor died. There are six beds on which as per record, 50 patients are treated daily while the doors of the hospital were closed to patient during the visit of the prince,” he added.
He further said that Khairpur Medical College does not have the required facilities and the future of 500 students is at stake. “Additionally, there is also no facility of house jobs for these students,’ said the PTI leader.
The PTI leader said that there is a civilian dictatorship which is trying to suppress the voice of opposition in Sindh Assembly and warned of taking to the streets instead of protesting and raising slogans in the assembly.
He said that in the House which had passed the resolution of G. M. Syed in favour of Pakistan, now the leader of the House says that he is seeing Pakistan drowning.
“Instead of being ashamed he says that he stands by this stance,” he remarked.
Haleem Adil said that a project costing Rs3 billion was initiated to upgrade hospitals in 41 Taulkas and develop trauma centers in Sindh in the year 2012 as the government had hastily decided to make trauma centres prefab hospitals and doubled the budget.
“This project had to be completed in six months by December 2012, but despite the passage of seven long years it is yet to be completed,” said Haleem Adil.
“Machinery was purchased before even construction of hospital buildings to earn commissions and kickbacks and now this costly machinery is rusted and wasted,” he added.
“In Sindh, no institute is functional to take notice of the mega corruption of rulers and take them to the task,” he concluded.
