KARACHI: Expressing what appeared to be a lack of confidence in the Sindh government, the Muttahida Qaumi-Pakistan Movement on Thursday called on the chairman of the Pakistani court (CJP) to pay attention to the shared “corruption, bad governance and injustice”. to people in provincial urban areas and issuing orders to bring them on par with those living in rural areas.
MQM-P organizer, Dr. Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui submitted this appeal when speaking at a press conference here at the party’s temporary headquarters in Bahadurabad.
MQM-P and Pak Sarzameen’s Party led by Mustafa Kamal have made serious accusations of having “ethnic and racist biases” against the Pakistan People’s Party government in Sindh and they feel that the recent appointment was made by the provincial government through the Sindh Public Service Commission (SPSC) is sufficient evidence of the truth of their accusations.
The first PSP president Anis Kaimkhani accused that no one had been appointed recently from Karachi and on Thursday, Dr Siddiqui from MQM-P filed a similar claim.
Dr Siddiqui said the world of laws and constitutions was made in the interests of the people, but in Sindh the basic rights of the people have been violated for the past 50 years.
Khalid Maqbool said the authorities had to tell people if they decided to show Karachi’s population less in the census
He said the Sindh government was “racist and biased” to deliberately marginalize and push the backwardness of parts of the provincial city.
He alleged that the PPP-led Sindh government fanned ethnic sentiment according to a well thought out plan.
Providing a recent example of what he called ethnic bias in providing government jobs, he said the PPP government had appointed 151 officers through the SPSC but none of them spoke Urdu.
“This government has ruled the province for the past 13 years and how it destroyed Karachi, with 30 million people contributing 70 percent of national income and 90 percent to the Sindh government, is in front of everyone,” he said. the word.
He said the Supreme Court had taken suo motu notices about different matters and also had to pay attention to the “injustices” that were inflicted on the Sindh urban area.
Dr Siddiqui recalls that his party brought to the Supreme Court his order at the sixth population census process and all concerns turned out to be correct later, but no hearing was held at the request of the MQM.
He said half of Karachi’s population was not even counted and indicated in the census results. “People must be told if a decision has been made to show Karachi’s smaller population.”
The organizer of the MQM-P asked the chairman of the Pakistani court to give a decision so that people in the Sindh urban area could consider themselves citizens who are equal to those who live in rural areas in the province.
He said Karachi people have regularly paid all fair and unjust taxes while bearing all injustices.
He claimed that when MQM came to power, he had provided every possible facility, including a ventilator, to hospitals in the Sindh urban area.
He said that despite limited resources, MQM had distributed among 150,000 locked ration bags in Karachi and 25,000 bags in other parts of the province.
Senior leaders Kanwar Naveed Jameel, Federal Minister of IT and Telecommunications Aminul Haque, Zahid Mansoori and Mehfooz Yar Khan were also present.
