Federation’s directive under Article 149 will be for uplift of Sindh, say PTI leaders


The Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Sindh leaders have said that there is no threat to Sindh if the federation issues directives as per Constitution for betterment of the province. Addressing a press conference, PTI Sindh chapter president Haleem Adil Sheikh, Opposition Leader in Sindh Assembly Firdous Shamim Naqvi and other PTI MPAs said that so far no directive was issued under Article 149 of the Constitution.
“We want to ask Raza Rabbani why Bilawal’s maternal grandfather kept Article 149 in the Constitution, if this article was so bad,” asked Haleem Adil. He said under this article the federation only had to issue direction for improvement of the situation; however, so far this article was not implemented. He said if the federation issued any direction for the betterment of Sindh, it should not be considered a threat. He said PPP leader Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari in his statement had proved that he was not a follower of Benazir Bhutto but instead a follower of Altaf Hussain.
‘Those talking about Bangladesh and Sindhudesh are not friends of Pakistan’ He said Altaf Hussain had talked about ‘Jinnahpur’ and Bilawal talks about ‘Sindhudesh’. Sheikh said strong provinces were guarantee of a strong Pakistan. He said those who were talking against Sindh were enemies of Pakistan. He said to talk about breaking Pakistan was treason.—APP
