Federal Minister of Information and Broadcasting Senator Shibli Faraz said on Wednesday that, the opposition is pressurizing the government to hide their corruption.
Addressing media in Karachi, the Minister said, the Opposition is playing politics for their personal interests, Pakistan Peoples Party and Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz have triggered anger among nation by their actions.
Unfortunately, work on development projects in Karachi has been slow, said the Minister. Despite limited resources, the Government is committed to solving Karachi’s problems. The problems of Karachi and Sindh will have to be solved by forgetting the political differences. He said that we all must contribute to the development of Pakistan.
Instead of tackling the challenges posed by the pandemic, the opposition is consistently creating problems for the Federal government.
Let it be known that President Arif Alvi on August 31 promulgated the Pakistan Islands Development Authority (PIDA) Ordinance, 2020, to facilitate the Centre to take control of Sindh’s two islands — Bundal and Buddo.
The enactment of the ordinance triggered strong criticism from the ruling party of Sindh.
Sindh Information Minister Syed Nasir Hussain Shah said the islands “were, are and will remain the property of Sindh”, adding that the province did not desire any development in which its people were not involved and which was without the Sindh government’s approval.
“We will not allow any action that seeks to usurp Sindh’s rights and land and could harm the local population,” he said.
Murtaza Wahab, the provincial government’s spokesperson, said the Constitution clearly stated that the land within a province’s limits belonged to the provincial government.
