PM took four years to solve Sindh’s problems: Khursheed
SUKKUR: Leader of the Opposition in National Assembly, Khursheed Shah on Saturday responded to PM’s announcements that he made in his public meeting at Thatta, saying that the PM took four years to address the issues of people of Sindh. He expressed these views in a media talk during his visit to Sukkur’s Ghulam Muhammad Mahar Medical College (GMMMC).
He said the premier felt the pain of Sindhi people after passage of four years in power. He said if he (PM) had finally announced some projects for Sindh, he should ensure that those are completed on time. He said that facilities in Sindh were almost zero compared with those in Punjab. He said the federal government was point scoring in the guise of providing basic rights to the people of Sindh.
Khursheed said he did not see any motorway being constructed in Sindh and if PM was converting the expressway to motorway, then it was not a favour. He said that making one motorway in Sindh was not an achievement when eight motorways were being made countrywide. The only good thing is that money is being spent on people, he added.
The opposition leader accused the federal government of not extending as much support to Sindh government as it was extending to Punjab’s. He asked the federal government to end double standards in dealing with the federating units.
