KARACHI: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Vice President and the leader of opposition in Sindh Assembly Haleem Adil Sheikh has rejected the allegations of Sindh chief minister Murad Ali Shah levelled in his press conference and said that the politics of PPP is based on hatred.

 

Addressing a press conference outside Sindh Assembly here Tuesday, he said the chief minister in his press conference of one hour only levelled allegations against the federal government. He was flanked by PTI parliamentary party leader Bilwal Ghaffar, Shahzad Qureshi and others. He said that the party of chief minister only believed in hatred. He said during meetings this chief minister remains silent. He was also silent in the meeting of previous day. He said former CM Qaim Ali Shah along with former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had set up SIDCL and at that time they had no any objection.

 

Sheikh said: “When the federal government wants to do something the Sindh government does not give NoC. PPP only wants corruption money. Rs12 billion lapsed because they did not give NoC. Karachi drowned into rainwater but the Sindh government did nothing. Sixty-nine percent revenue of Sindh government is generated from Karachi, but the provincial government has left the megacity orphaned.”

 

He said the PPP government had given gifts of AIDS and dog bite cases and overflowing gutters. “The Sindh government has not even made one motorway. Public private partnership in case of Malir Expressway is OK for them but such projects are not acceptable for others.”

 

He said poor people were homeless but the buffaloes of Bilawal were kept in posh bungalow under guard of police commandos, adding PPP was involved in several corruption cases including tractor scheme, Nooriabad power plant, and sugar subsidy. He said all this corruption money went to Omni Group. He said the federal government had given funds for cleaning Karachi drains and water projects. He said Sindh and Sindh governments were two different things. He said that the country was not estate of Bhutto or Zardari.
