Prior to this, the provincial assembly had passed the Sindh Local Government (Amendment) Bill, 2021 on Nov 26 and sent it to Governor Imran Ismail who raised objections to the bill and sent it back to the assembly.
However, in today’s session presided over by Speaker Agha Siraj Durrani, the Sindh Assembly once again passed the Local Government (Amendment) Bill, 2021 with majority vote. Provincial Minister for Local Government Syed Nasir Hussain Shah tabled the bill in the assembly.
The Opposition members protested over the bill, rejecting it once again. The treasury and opposition members indulged in physical brawl and created a pandemonium in the assembly. The opposition MPs tore the copies of the bill in protest.
However, the treasury benches succeeded in sailing the bill through the assembly. They were of the view that there would be no need for governor’s approval anymore.
After taking the floor, Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah censured the opposition’s behavior saying that the biggest bane of a democratic setup was an ‘uneducated’ opposition. He said opposition members loved creating an uproar. He said after coming from Islamabad, they wanted to capture Sindh.
He warned the opposition: “Do not create such circumstances that prompt us to think something else. Think about us (Sindh) as we are part of Pakistan”.
He said that a ‘selected’ was sitting on the throne asking him to extend his apology to nation and leave.
