Took up Sindh’s energy issues with PM: Murad

Took up Sindh’s energy issues with PM: Murad

The chief minister on Sunday said he had a fruitful one-to-one meeting with Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Sindh’s persisting energy issues and a follow up meeting would be held between the two during the premier’s next visit to Karachi.

Speaking to newsmen after participating in a friendly cricket match between teams representing the CM and the Sindh governor late on Saturday night, Murad Ali Shah said he had taken up all of the province’s energy matters, including issues with natural gas supply, with PM Abbasi.

Shah added that the prime minister had promised a detailed follow-up meeting on his next visit to Karachi, expected by the end of next week.

The News learnt that during the meeting between PM Abbasi and CM Shah at the Governor House, the former urged the latter to improve his working relationship with municipal organisations for effective resolution of public issues.

Abbasi also pushed Shah to play his due part in improving Sindh’s security affairs, while assuring him that the federal government would extend maximum cooperation for development in the province. 

Another topic broached by the CM in his media talk was the provincial government’s relations with Sindh Governor Mohammad Zubair. Shah categorically denied reports of any confrontation and asserted that he enjoyed cordial relations with Zubair. 

To this end, the CM cited the fact that the duo had travelled in the same car to participate in the cricket match after seeing off PM Abbasi at the airport. The CM also expressed his grief over Saturday’s bomb blast in Quetta and condemned the act of terror in strong words and prayed for the departed.
