The Opposition Leader in Sindh Assembly, Haleem Adil Sheikh, coming down hard on PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari regarding what he called his ‘childish’ statement on the floor of National Assembly regarding the increase in donkeys, has asked him to order the ‘corrupt’ people around him to eliminate stray and rabid dogs in Sindh.
Sheikh, who is also central vice president of PTI, speaking to media persons outside the Anti-Terrorism Court after the hearing with regard to a case registered against him, asked PPP chairman to behave like a mature politician while commenting on the sensitive issues of the country.
“Donkeys don’t happen to be so harmful and have been helpful to mankind since time immemorial so it is very childish and insensible thinking to make mockery of the increase of the useful animals,” he observed and asked ‘corrupt’ rulers of Sindh to save people of Sindh from dogs instead of clapping on the ‘senseless’ speeches of their party chairman.
The PTI leader said that 26 incidents of the dog-bite in the home district of the PPP chairman in a single day spoke volumes of their callousness towards the people of the province.
He said that after PPP leaders failed to provide the ambulance services, people were using donkey-driven carts to carry the sick and bodies, adding he asked them to feel the difference between the meek donkeys and dangerous beasts.
