TV grab.

Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry has alleged that the Sindh government has damaged the provincial police force by deploying them on protocol duty only and now Karachi police have no ability to maintain law and order in the country's largest city, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Talking to newsmen in Karachi on Sunday, the federal minister said that if there were no Rangers then there would be no law and order in Karachi.  “See what they have done with Ghotki and Badin,” he added.

Fawad suggested that there is a need to establish strong local governments to provide people facilities.  

Fawad asked a question from Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah-led PPP government that how long they will govern by giving contracts to the blue-eyed contractors.

Fawad said Sindh had received Rs1,600 billion under NFC in recent years. “Where did the money go?” he asked.

He alleged that Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah is doing nationalist politics. 

The federal government had provided additional 500-megawatt electricity to K-electric and that was the reason there was no loadshedding in Karachi despite in other parts of the country.  

“There is no such thing like ‘Governor’s Rule' in the constitution and it is an undemocratic action,” Fawad commented.  

He also criticized PMLN leader Ahsan Iqbal who gave a statement against overseas Pakistanis that they do not understand the problems of Pakistan. 

The minister claimed that all indications predict that PML-N has no future even in the next general elections. 

“Ahsan Iqbal and Mohsin Ranjha gave derogatory statements against overseas Pakistanis as PML-N does not want to give right to vote to overseas Pakistanis,” Fawad said.    

Fawad lauded expatriate Pakistanis who sent $29 billion in remittances to the country. 

The minister also criticised PML-N for rejecting Electronic Voting Machine (EVM) technology before seeing it.
