LARKANA: Larkano Awami Ittehad leader Moazam Ali Abbasi and JUI-Fazal & MMA leader Maulana Nasir Khalid Mahmood Soomro have said that PPP government in Sindh has failed to resolve civic issues of Larkana, adding heaps of garbage can be seen in the entire city despite release of funds of billions of rupees.
Addressing a press conference at Larkana Press Club here on Wednesday, they said that streets in many localities of the city have already been submerged into sewerage water.
They said that Larkana mayor has also completely failed to address the problems faced by the citizens. They said that they are giving him 15-days ultimatum after which a struggle “Remove Mayor – Save Larkana” will be launched from February 10.
They said that on that day all political and social forces will jointly stage a massive sit-in in front of the office of the mayor after holding protest demonstration.
They alleged that no development work has been carried out till today in the areas of political opponents. They said that they don’t have a personal agenda but they are talking about the issues of the residents. They said that not a single rupee has been spent in those areas where the opponents of the ruling PPP have majority.
JUI-F leader Nasir Mahmood Soomro said that the performance of the mayor was dismally poor, adding every Muhalla of Larkana is inundated with sewage water due to which residents are passing their lives miserably. He said as in local government constituencies’ anti-PPP chairmen and vice chairmen were elected so these areas are being ignored by the rulers.
He said that people of Larkana should not consider themselves alone, adding they will get rid of these corrupt people in 2018 elections. He alleged that the mayor of Larkana is not mayor of people but the mayor of the PPP and he is serving to his party bosses and not to the citizens.
Changez Abro, Awais Abbasi, Ashique Dhamrah and others were also present.
