PPP believes in reconciliation not hate: Nasir Shah


Sindh Minister for Information, Local Government Nasir Hussain Shah has said that Pakistan People’s Party had always followed politics of reconciliation but other political parties had reciprocated with politics of hypocrisy.

He added that what was happening in the Sindh Assembly was against the agreed principals.

Before the budget session, the Speaker of the Sindh Assembly had invited the opposition for ensuring peaceful atmosphere in the session, which was attended by Pakistan TehreekInsaf and Grand Democratic Alliance, while MuttahidaQuami Moment Pakistan stayed away.

He added that on the on the insistence of opposition parties all the members of Sindh assembly were invited to raise the issues of their constituencies and one day was extended in the assembly session.

He expressed these views while talking to media at Sindh Assembly Media corner, along with Provincial Minister for Mines and Mineral Development Shabir Ali Bijarani and Provincial Law Adviser Barrister MurtazaWahab on Thursday.

He said that MQM had been making noises during the speeches of government members and kept uproar in assembly for two days.

On Thursday, despite the Speaker’s warning, their attitude remained the same and the Speaker adjourned the sitting for some time.

“The MQM submits hundreds of cut motions every year, but this year they have not filed a single cut motion on the budget . It seems to me that someone has conspired against them,” the minister said.

Shah said that in line with the vision of Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, the CM and his team have given the best budget in difficult circumstances.

Despite cut of more than Rs 80 billion in federal transfers in the current financial year, the best budget has been given.

He said that those who claim for the mandate of Karachi, have not even a single MPA seat in three districts including in Malir, South and East. They are once again sowing the seeds of hate.

The Minister added that MQM alleged PPP for carrying out economic massacre of Karachi, which was misleading and trying to play with emotions of people of this city.

He said that MQM was party which had carried out physical massacre in Karachi and hundreds were burned alive in Baldia factory by those so called “Nafees Log”.“

Demand of southern province was actually connection to mind set of Jinnahpur,” the Information Minister said and added that the people of Karachi have discarded the politics of hatred.

On the occasion, Provincial Minister for Mine and Mineral Development Shabir Ali Bijarani said that Haleem Adil Sheikh has accused him of sponsoring dacoits. He advised Haleem Adil to correct the record.

Our family had been in politics from pre-partition period and his father and grandfather had always done the politics of nobility.

My grandfather had voted in favour of Pakistan resolution. Haleem Adil Sheikh has entered in politics in recent years and promoting chaos in politics.
