Federal Secretary inaugurates uplift work in Umerkot


UMERKOT: Chief Minister Sindh is playing politics of accusations to hide his incompetence. The federal government will not leave the people of Sindh alone, said Federal Parliament Secretary Finance Makhdoom Zain Hussain Shah Qureshi.

Talking to the media in Umerkot along with Federal Parliamentary Secretary for Human Rights Lal Chand Malhi at his residence, Qureshi said that Prime Minister Imran Khan would not compromise on corruption. No one from opposition parties would be given NRO, he said.

Answering a question, Qureshi said that Jahangir Tareen group was also part of PTI and people from Tareen’s group will vote for passing the budget. He criticized Chairman Pakistan People’s Party, Chief Minister Sindh and other ministers for accusing the federal government. The Sindh government was in power for 13 years, but could not resolve the water crisis.

Answering a question Qureshi said that PM Imran loves the people of Sindh. When the PM visited Sukkur he announced a historic package of Rs485 billion for Sindh and Rs1100 billion for Karachi. Talking about NAB, he said that NAB was a free and sovereign institution.

There were many cases of our people too and they were facing them. Everyone is answerable for a single corruption. The PTI government will not compromise on justice. There should be no politics on national issues. When it comes to national issues then it is the opposition’s duty to stand by the government. Qureshi said.

Talking to the media, Lal Chand Malhi said that Shireen Mazari had tabled the Journalist Protection Bill into the parliament. He further said that this credit also goes to Umerkot because she belongs to Umerkot and the Federal Government was working hard for the safety and wellness of journalists.

On this occasion, journalists from Umerkot requested both the federal leaders for special grants for the Umerkot Press Club. Earlier, Qureshi was accorded a warm welcome on his arrival in Umerkot. He inaugurated the construction work of Ghousia Enclosure at Marvi Ground Umerkot.
