Governance in Sindh isn’t just bad; it’s criminal, claims Haleem

Karachi

December 2, 2019

Haleem Adil Sheikh has said that it is time to stop using “bad governance” in the context of Sindh because things have worsened with time, and it is now more appropriate to term the prevalent situation as “criminal governance”.

The parliamentary party leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) in the Sindh Assembly made these claims while talking to The News on Sunday, when he was asked to shed some light on the situation of the province. He said Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah should own all the “criminal governance”.

Sheikh claimed that during the past 10 months more than 190,000 dog-bite cases have been reported across the province, and that the rabies vaccine is unavailable to treat the victims.

He also claimed that a dog-bite case was reported from the constituency of the CM but the rabies vaccine was not available for that victim as well. He accused the provincial government of being involved in rampant corruption under the guise of curbing the increase of stray dogs. He lamented that Karachi still looked like a garbage dump, even after the recent month-long campaign of the province’s chief executive to clear the city’s trash.

The PTI leader said that more than 100 cases of HIV/AIDS have been reported across Sindh, not because of the parents passing on the virus to their children but because of the unsuspecting victims being administered injections through used syringes.

Regarding the kidnapping of a young girl at gunpoint in the upmarket Defence Housing Authority neighbourhood of the city, Sheikh said the police are yet to arrest the culprits. He said that it has been four months since the Police Order was made a law, so now the police are under the CM, but the crime rate is at its peak all over the province.
