Sehwan, April 14, 2019 (PPI-OT): Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah has said that the inefficient federal government [of PTI] has completely failed to deliver and have brought tsunami of price hike, unrest and have pushed poor people to abject poverty by reducing employment opportunities.
This he said on Sunday while speaking on the occasion of 12th death anniversary of former Sindh chief minister Syed Abdullah Shah organized at his native village Wahur- Murad Shah, Sehwan. The death anniversary programme was attended by Sindh PPP President Nisar Khuhro, provincial cabinet members, special assistants, MNAs, MPAs, senators, PPP workers and people from different walks of life. Just after arrival at his villages, the chief minister visited his ancestral graveyard and offered fateh at the mazars of his father Syed Abdullah Shah and mother and sprinkled rose petals on them.
The chief minister said that the inefficient federal government had no capacity to rule and ameliorate lot of the people because they have no roots among the people of Pakistan. He added that everyone knew very well how they had been brought into power.
Mr Shah said that people of the province were asking him about launching of development works in their areas but “I want to tell them that the inefficient federal government has failed to release Sindh government’s due share from the divisible pool, therefore the we are facing shortage of funds and cannot start development as we had started last year,” he said and vowed that the provincial government would start development schemes from its own resources from the next financial year.
Talking about inauguration of Thar Coal-based power plant, the chief minister said that it was a big achievement of the Sindh government. “We have realized the dream of Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto who had performed ground breaking ceremony of coal mine and coal-fired power plant at Keti Bandar,” he said and added “it was not a dream but a sincere and visionary step of Shaheed Benazir to bring an end to load-shedding in the country.”
Murad Shah said that we had gathered here last year to observe Syed Abdullah Shah’s 11 death anniversary last and then went to contest general election. “Our opponents formed big alliances and groups but the people of Sindh rejected them and voted PPP to power with more seats and more strength,” he said. The chief minister said that the PPP government in Sindh would be serving people of Sindh because service to people was the tradition of PPP leadership.
Recalling the train march of PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, the chief minister said that just he [Bilawal Bhutto] was going to Naudero on April 4 by train and people living in the nook and corner of central and Northern Sindh, out their love and respect with the son of Shaheed Benazir Bhutto, came out at the railway stations and gave him a warm and historic welcome.
“This historic and crowded welcome of the people of Sindh have caused turmoil in corridors of power in the federal government,” he said and added they were scared of him because they know he had the ability to deliver for this country and its people. Mr Shah said that the people of Sindh and Pakistan would bring PPP Chief Bilawal Bhutto into power in the center in the next election.
Sindh PPP President Nisar Khuhro said that Syed Abdullah Shah had the ability to deal with the people who had ever hatched any conspiracy against Sindh and its people. Abdullah Shah knew the people who have always promoted the politics of hatred and divide, therefore he thwarted all their nefarious designs.
Mr Khuhro said that some people were once again talking about division of Sindh. “Whenever they [MQM-P] have been rejected by people they have tried to take revenge from Sindh- the mother land, this is their character,” he said and added “you were defeated by PTI in general elections and why are you taking its revenge from your mother land- Sindh,” he asked them and told them categorically that the Sindh is, was and will be always united and we know how to defend its unity.
Speaking on the occasion Sindh Education Minister Syed Sardar Shah said that some people have again started singing their old song of dividing Sindh but “I want to tell them that the Urdu speaking people know them very well and they would not be part of their old tactics of their pseudo nationalism,” he said and added people of Sindh, particularly Urdu-speaking Sindhis would never allow them to play their old tactics.
Sardar Shah said that Abdullah Shah was a true lover of Sindh and its people. Abdullah Shah served Sindh and its people to the best of his abilities. He was a brave, valiant and courageous leader of PPP and under the dynamic leadership of Shaheed Benazir Bhutto served this province to his best.
Those who spoke on the occasion include District President PPP Jamshoro Asif Shah, Hyderabad Divisional President Ali Nawaz Shah Rizvi and others. In the end of the programme fateh was offered for Syed Abdullah Shah, Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto and Shaheed workers of PPP.
