President of Pakistan’s Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Karachi and MPA Khurrum Sher Zaman said on Saturday that one of his statements on Friday had been misinterpreted and therefore he offered his apology if it hurt anyone’s feelings.
Zaman was severely criticized by some activists on social media after he expressed concern over the transfer of 171 police officers from Sindh village to Karachi and questioned whether the Sindh government planned to harass Karachi traders through them.
On Saturday, he, along with other PTI leaders, attended a press conference at Insaf House, the party’s secretariat, and said that the Sindh people needed to recognize their enemies. According to him, a conspiracy is being designed to make people fight and that is mainly to divert public attention from poor governance and poor performance of the provincial government.
Zaman said Sindh was standing on a mountain of corruption. He criticized the Pakistan People’s Party for not improving Sindh’s condition despite the fact that it has ruled the province for the past 12 years. “The main minister’s press conference is entirely based on lies,” he said.
The head of the PTI city was of the view that the federal government did not interfere in provincial affairs. Prime Minister Imran Khan has given the right to make decisions to all provinces, he said. “Punjab and Balochistan have made their own decisions,” he said, adding that in the Sindh case, the CM itself was hostile to its people. “The Sindh people suffered irreparable losses due to the Sindh government anti-people decision.”
“Today, Sindh children are dying of hunger and dog bites. Zeeshan from Larkana, our son from Sindh, died in agony. Seventy percent of the water in Sindh cannot be drunk, “Zaman said.
Boasting the performance of his party in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (KP), he claimed that people from all over the world flocked to KP where poverty rates dropped. “Balochistan and Punjab are also moving forward but our Sindh province is lagging behind due to corruption and bad governance.”
The PTI KKP also accused the provincial government of spreading hatred among the people.
“Billions of rupees have been distributed among the Sindh poor under the Ehsaas emergency cash program [of the federal government]. But the performance of Sindh’s chief minister is questionable, “he said.
Repeating PTI’s support for traders’ requests to reopen business activities, Zaman called on the Sindh government to formulate standard operating procedures (SOPs) for markets throughout the province and allow traders to continue their business activities.
He said PTI had fulfilled its promise to Karachi and development work was still ongoing in various areas of the city. He asserted that the federal government worked in every way possible for the city.
Zaman stated that Imran Khan was the only Sindh leader. He also asked Karachi Mayor Wasim Akhtar to clarify his position during the closing crisis and explain what he was doing.
PTI MNA Alamgir Khan said the biggest problem in Karachi at the moment was water shortages. “Water supply has stopped in our constituency for political reasons. “The water is not flowing on the line but the tank mafia is active and sells water in our constituency,” he said.
Criticizing various Sindh government departments, Alamgir said the hydrant business must be stopped immediately. He added that the Sindh government had failed to form an SOP and illegal construction had begun in various locations in the city,
MNA Aftab Siddiqui, Aslam Khan, Fahim Khan, Akram Cheema, Aftab Jahangir and Saif-ur-Rehman, members of the Sindh Assembly Jamal Siddiqui and Shehzad Qureshi, and other PTI leaders, including Mahmood Maulvi and Imran Siddiqui, were also present at the press conference.
