The curse of poverty
History is witness that the Sindhi people have never been so much poor as they have become nowadays. Reason is simple behind this abject poverty in Sindh province is simple because their so-called elected representatives- MNAs and MPAs- and also bureaucrats and technocrats are rich. They are entirely corrupt and embezzle and misappropriate the funds. It would be nice if the poor were to get even half of the money that is spent over publicity and advertisement of Sindh Bank and other organizations in the province.
Confucius has aptly said: “In a country well governed, poverty is something to be ashamed of. In a country badly governed, wealth is something to be ashamed of.” Is there anyone to take notice of the sordid state of affairs in the province and direct the thick-skinned provincial rulers and also Pakistan Poverty Alleviation Fund ( PPAF) and Sindh Rural Support Program, which have done nothing practical to lessen poverty.
