Interior Sindh members of PML-N unhappy

KARACHI: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif chaired a meeting on Tuesday to discuss the reorganisation of PML-N in interior Sindh. However, he faced criticism from PML-N’s interior Sindh members who were standing outside the Governor House to attend the meeting but were not allowed inside.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif arrived in Karachi to attend Holi and also to chair his party’s meeting in connection with the reorganisation of the interior Sindh chapter. The meeting at the Governor House was attended by the party’s MPAs and local representatives who had won the local bodies elections.

Nawaz Sharif, while addressing the party workers at the Governor's House, said: “We don’t believe in politics of opposition and confusion. We have a clear agenda to steer the country out of crisis and make way for prosperity and development. Let the Dharna people do their job while we will continue to serve the masses. The project of Karachi Circular Railway has also been included in the CPEC and work will start on it very soon.”

He said that his government would heal the wounds of Sindh and soon people would heave a sigh of relief, and they would eradicate the sense of deprivation prevalent in Sindh. He asked the PML-N leadership in Sindh to speed up the process of mass mobilisation. “We will fully participate in the upcoming general elections all over the province, including Karachi.”

The PM vowed to cooperate in resolving Karachi’s issues saying that they would not sit peacefully till the elimination of the last terrorist and lasting peace in the city. While reiterating his stance, he said that the operation would continue in the city till the achievement of their goals.

The PM expressed grave concerns over the cleanliness and traffic chaos in the city. He said that Karachi would have been Asia’s number one city if development work would have continued as it was in the year 1970 but unfortunately it was hampered by the political mafia.

“The city of lights was deliberately destroyed. It was the city of education from where the intellectual class emerged,” he said. “Our government has not closed eyes to Karachi’s issues and for that reason we have launched the army operation and are successful in achieving our goals. We will not sit idle till the elimination of last terrorist.”

He further said: “Now, we are working for the development of Karachi. The work on the motorway for Sukkur, Hyderabad and Karachi is in full swing and the government will give 50 percent amount for the development work in the province.”

“Militancy is the bigger challenge our government is facing and the operation will be accelerated to combat this menace for lasting peace in the city,” he asserted.

The PM asked the Sindh leadership to revamp the PML-N’s party and arrange the party’s convention. “The PML-N would be made effective and active in the province,” he said.

On the other hand, annoyed PML-N members who came from interior Sindh to express their reservations were not allowed inside. They believed that since Nawaz Sharif had come into power, access to him was denied in the name of security or other reasons.
