Rulers responsible for dog-bite deaths in Sindh: Haleem
Non-availability of dog-bite vaccine in Sindh has taken yet another innocent life and provincial rulers are wholly responsible for this death, said Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf (PTI) Sindh chapter president and leader of parliamentary party in Sindh assembly Haleem Adil Sheikh.
Addressing a media conference in the committee room of Sindh Assembly, flanked by MPAs Dua Bhutto, Jamal Siddiquie and Shahnawaz Jadoon, Mehfooz Ursani he said in Sakrand a vaccine center was established with a cost of Rs40million, but 500 vials of vaccines produced by this center was not even collected and utilized.
He said the death of innocent child Mir Hassan due to non-availability of vaccine is another tragedy and undeniable proof of the glaring failure of Sindh health department.
Talking about the tragedy of Kasur, he said he would ask the chief minister of Punjab and IGP to sack anti-social elements that were recruited in Punjab police by Nawaz Sharif government. He said they feel the pain of such tragedies irrespective of where they happen.
He said had the killer of Zainab hanged in public such incidents would not have taken place. He said the mentally challenged youth, Salahuddin, had also asked from the Punjab police that who had taught them such severe torture.
He said there is a need to improve police order in Punjab also. He said those involved in crimes against children should be publically hanged.—INP
