Advisor information strongly reacts to governor’s statement regarding division of Sindh

May 9, 2019

Karachi, May 09, 2019 (PPI-OT): Advisor to Chief Minister Sindh on Information, Law and Anti Corruption Barrister Murtaza Wahab while reacting severely to statement of Governor Sindh regarding division of Sindh has said that Sindh assembly had given clear message to those who were dreaming of division of Sindh and advised Governor to refrain from such political statement. He said that office of Governor is a constitutional position and Governor should act according to constitutional limits. In a statement on Wednesday, the advisor said that statement of Governor Sindh was unsuccessful attempt to divert the attention from the lack of ability and failed policies of Federal Government. He said that civil society of Sindh has strongly reacted to Governor’s statement and added that Governor should read the writing on the wall.

On other hand while briefing to media after meeting of select committee which met here to discuss new legislation on Police, the advisor said that formation of Public Safety Commission was under consideration for maintaining check and balance on the police. He declined the impression that government wanted to keep powers of police. He added that it is also incorrect that powers of transfers and postings in police will rest with one person in new police law. He said that the transfer and postings in police will be done with consultation of Chief Minister Sindh and IG Sindh Police. He informed that Public Safety Commission will comprise twelve members. It is also mentioned in police order 2002.

He said that unanimity is prevailed among the opposition and government in this regard. He said that police order 2002 is also enforced in Punjab. “Why it cannot be in operation in Sindh,” he added and said that it is promising step by the Sindh Government for imposing police order 2002. He said that some recommendation has been received from opposition which will be reviewed in the select committee. He said that this bill contains three important points including independence, setting up of Safety Commission and formation of committees on district and provincial level. He said that police will be accountable to public safety commission and commission will be assigned authority against Police in case of misuse of power. Barrister Murtaza Wahab said that new law will come into force in thirty days after its passage from Sindh Assembly.
