Time for PM Imran Khan to go, says Sindh CM
In an interesting comment on the joint session of the parliament today, Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah has said that it is the time for Prime Minister Imran Khan to go as the ‘winds of change’ have started blowing from Islamabad to Karachi, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Wednesday.
Talking to the media after appearing in an accountability court (AC) in Islamabad in connection with Nooriabad Power Plant reference, he even claimed that the government ministers and other lawmakers of the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) had started calling members of the parliament (MPs), belonging to Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), for help.
Sindh CM said he wished his case was decided early, but due to ambiguity in the NAB Amendment Ordinance, progress in his case had stalled.
He further claimed that the figures of Sindh population as reported in the last national census were not exact.
CM Murad accused the Centre of transferring those officials of the Sindh government who worked hard, with honesty and dedication.
He was of the view that the present government had little understanding of the constitution. “The government can only be expected to violate the constitution. Sindh is being discriminated against,” he alleged.
“We had challenged the government’s claim that the country had electricity in abundance,” the chief minister said.
Sindh CM escapes ‘indictment’ again
