Umar Kot: Federal Minister for communication and postal services Murad Saeed on Sunday said that pomp and show of people of Umar Kot is like people of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa for Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and Prime Minister Imran Khan adding that the people of the province are being robbed on the name of bread, cloths and house.
Addressing a Sindh cultural day rally in Umar Kot, Murad Saeed said that no any institution is working in Sindh while fake cases are being made against those who love Prime Minister Imran Khan.
The Minister said that the people of Sindh are deprived of clean drinking water adding that sheep and goats are tied in government schools in Sindh.
Earlier on Saturday, the minister, addressing a presser accompanied by Leader of the Opposition in the Sindh Assembly Haleem Adil Sheikh, accused the Pakistan Peoples Party government in Sindh of misappropriation of funds provided under the National Finance Commission (NFC) award during the past many years calling the provincial administration as “the most corrupt” in the country’s history.
Murad Saeed vowed that Islamabad would no longer leave the people of Sindh at the mercy of “corrupt PPP”.
“They [PPP leaders] will always complain about funds and make hue and cry against the federal government,” Murad Saeed said .
He added: “But whenever we ask them about spending of funds and what development work they had carried out with trillions of rupees during the past 13 years, they stage a boycott in the National Assembly. The PPP government has spent all NFC funds on corruption and personal wealth of the leaders.”
He said the PPP government had used 18th Amendment as a “tool of corruption” and always tried to hide its failure in the name of democracy.
“So whatever the legal capacity the federal government has, we will keep playing our role for the people of Sindh,” said Mr Saeed.
Referring to the recently passed Sindh Local Government (Amendment) Bill 2021, he called it a “dictatorial law” and true reflection of “feudal mindset” of the PPP leadership.
