President of Pakistan Dr Arif Alvi has said the 18th amendment that gives power to the provinces, law and just like any other law, can be reviewed and changed.

In his recent statement, he said that talks between the federal government and provinces have taken place on the issue between the federation and provinces.

“Gradually as our economy improves, which is under pressure from the coronavirus as well, an agreement will be reached [between Centre and provinces] on which province should get what slice of the cake,” he added.

“When the situation is ‘tight’, then disagreements on the distribution of income take place even in a household or a family.”

“There are always disagreements and differences between the government and the provinces. These have been there since independence.

President Alvi said that the tense economy was to blame for the issues between the federal government and provinces.

“There has never been a discussion to shelve the issues of Sindh government,” the president said.

The President said that corruption had always been present in the country.
