Information Secretary Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Parliamentarians, MNA Shazia Atta Marri has alleged that the federal government is not providing the due financial share to provinces as promised by it.

She stated this while addressing a press conference in Islamabad on Friday. PPP Sindh leaders Nasir Shah, Saeed Ghani, Murtaza Wahab, Waqar Mehdi and Ajiz Dhamra.

Shazia Marri said that the economic survey data is not about facts and under the constitution, a fixed portion of the NFC award is given to the provinces.

Sindh is objecting that it is not getting its constitutional share, she said adding not only Sindh but the other three provinces are also not getting their share but they have chosen to remain silent. She said that Sindh is constantly being abused.

The PSDP is approved by NEC, which should hold at least two NEC meetings a year but only one meeting was held.

She said that Sindh’s share in NFC was 770 billion and in the last 11 month Sindh received only 613 billion so far so Sindh whereas it should have got Rs 690 billion in the last 11 months.—INP
