Qureshi blasts PPP government’s performance in Sindh
Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said Wednesday that after the 18th Amendment it was the Sindh government that was responsible for looking after the health sector, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
Talking to the media in Karachi, he also hit out at the provincial government for its ‘incompetence’ and ‘negligence’ in preventing the incident of harassment of a Hindu in Tharparkar.
He asked whether principles of democracy and human rights applied only to Punjab. “Don’t these norms have any worth in Sindh?” the FM asked.
Referring to a meeting between former prime minister Nawaz Sharif with National Security Adviser of Afghanistan Hamdullah Mohib in London, he wondered whether one would invite somebody to his home who had uttered ‘nonsense’ against his country.
Qureshi said that the people of Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) had given their verdict in the favour of PTI in the elections held on Sunday (July 25).
He reminded media men that he had predicted sometime back that PTI’s popularity would soon expand beyond Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP). “People of Sindh are not pleased with the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) government’s performance and they want change, and it was high time we present our viewpoint to the people of the province,” he stressed.
He said people belonging to different ethnic groups of Balochistan were playing their part in the development of the province. “It is our endeavour that we bring disgruntled elements of the province to the mainstream national politics,” Qureshi said.
