Sindh not Zardari, Murad Shah’s fiefdom: Haleem Adil


Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf (PTI) Vice President and the leader of opposition in Sindh Assembly Haleem Adil Sheikh has said that Sindh is not a fiefdom of Murad and Zardari and they are answerable to 6 Crore people of Sindh.

Addressing a press conference here Wednesday at Sindh Assembly, flanked by PTI Karachi Division president KhuramSherzaman and parliamentary leader Bilal Ghaffar and other MPAs, he said that opposition and media have got a very important rule in highlighting the problems of people. He said the parties who made Charter of Democracy are themselves violating it. He said Sindh chief minister says he is not answerable to the Prime Minister. He said Murad is answerable to 6 Crore people of Sindh, because it is democracy and this is not a fiefdom or kingdom of Murad or Zardari.


Haleem said the rulers of Sindh will have to tell where Rs7880billion were spent in 12 years and Rs957billion in 10 years. He said nowhere courts normally annul laws passed by assembly, but they made three laws and the Supreme Court of Pakistan annulled them.

He said a law for use of auto-lock syringe was passed but not implemented. He said a law of compulsory education was passed but 6million children are not getting education. He said the public accounts committee should be given to the leader of the opposition, but in Sindh assembly no opposition member is included in this committee. He said their standards change when they are in the national assembly.

Haleem Adil said in Sindh Rs80billion were devoured in the name of subsidies. He said Rs2billion subsidy is given on wheat. He said subsidy was given to tractors to benefit the Omni Group.

He said captive power subsidy, sugar subsidy and revival of sick industries subsidies were novel ways of corruption in Sindh.

He said Bilawal Zardari can be made chairperson for committee on human rights, but in Sindh Firdous Shamim Naqvi is not made head of any committee. He said Syed Naveed Qaamar could become chairperson for commerce but Qamar Naveed in Sindh is not considered for such matters. He said Sajid Hussain Tori could be made chairperson for industries and production, but in Sindh Hussnain Mirza goes ignored. He said Amir Ali Khan Magsi can become chairperson of maritime affairs and Syed Mustafa Muhammad chairperson for privatization, but there is no such culture for opposition members in Sindh. He said Farooq Naik can become Senate standing chairman but in Sindh KhuramSherzaman is not made chairman of any committee.
