Validation of Census 2017 is a fraud


Member PPP Core Committee Senator Taj Haider has said that it is unbelievable that the Council of Common Interest (CCI) could validate a massive fraud in the shape of Census 2017 against the right of people of Sindh to be counted correctly.

In a statement issued against the validation of the provisional figures of Census by the CCI on Tuesday, Senator Taj Haider reminded that all parties of the Senate had signed an agreement for a recount in 5% population blocks and the correction of the Census figures.

This agreement also bears the signatures of Senator Azam Swati who at that time was Parliamentary leader of the PTI.

He said, the agreement of all leaders of parliamentary parties of the Senate to correct Census figures concluded with the then Prime Minister Mr. Shahid Khaqan Abbasi in chair was a trick played against Sindh by the PML (N) government in order to get the 24th Amendment passed.—INP
