KARACHI – Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Karachi President and Sindh Assembly Member Khurram Sher Zaman on Tuesday demanded a transparent investigation into the fire incident in the Sindh Assembly (SA) recording room.
He spoke to the media after checking the Assembly recording room.
Karachi PTI Secretary General Saeed Afridi, Sindh Raja Azhar Assembly Member, Shehzad Qureshi and others were also present at the occasion. However, Sher Zaman added that PTI did not expect a transparent investigation from the anti-corruption department. “Therefore, we demand that the NAB investigate immediately why there are frequent fires in the recording room,” he said, adding, “Some time ago, a fire broke out at the Sindh Secretariat where income records were burned.”
“We also demand that the Chair of the Sindh Agha Assembly Siraj Durrani immediately order an investigation into the incident,” he said.
The PTI leader further said that during the 12 years of the PPP administration in Sindh, the people in the province saw nothing but bad governance because incompetent people sat in the provincial cabinet. “The Sindh government cannot even provide clean drinking water to the community,” he regretted.
He said it was ridiculous that on one hand the provincial education minister said that Sindh children lost quality education while on the other hand he claimed to have spent billions of rupees on education. “The entire Sindh province does not have a good health care system. PPP has destroyed the provincial health system. The reason for the Sindh government silence in this matter is that the minister of health is Asif Ali Zardari’s sister, “Sher Zaman said.
He said it was ironic that the Sindh government advisers who were sitting in air-conditioned rooms, mocked the advisers to the prime minister for having dual citizenship. “I would like to inform the management of the PPP office that members of your party who sit in the Sindh Assembly also have two nationalities,” he said angrily.
“I pay tribute to Prime Minister Imran Khan for asking for details about the assets and citizenship status of the ministers and their advisers,” he said, and asked the PPP to do the same.
He further said that additional Hyderabad IGP retiree Ghulam Qadir Thebo had written a letter to the Hyderabad SSP, stating that SHO of 29 police stations in Hyderabad were involved in drug trafficking and other illegal activities.
“Previously, a report was prepared by the SSP about the two current PPP ministers. These reports have not been investigated. Bilawal Zardari must hold his ministers accountable for the corruption of the General Auditor in the Sindh government for the past 12 years, “he said, adding,” If he does not do this, we will assume that Bilawal Zardari is also involved in all this. ”
Praising Justice Amir Muslim Hani, Sher Zaman said that he will always be remembered for his role in the Water Commission. “We will petition the Supreme Court again to return the Water Commission. It is PTI’s determination to expose the ‘corrupt’ face of the PPP government in Sindh, “he concluded.

The top tycoons for fair care with Mir Shakil-ur-Rahman
KARACHI: Famous businessmen and entrepreneurs – Arif Habib, Aqeel Karim Dhedhi and Jahangir Siddiqui demanded that Jang / Geo Editor-in-Chief Mir Shakil-ur-Rahman be given the same treatment as promised with the business community. In a message, Arif Habib Group founder Arif Habib said that Mir Shakil-ur-Rahman, Jang Group and his family have contributed to the State and society for generations and is the largest media house in the country. With that in mind, he must be given the same conditions and be under the same SOP that was made and promised to the business community. Accordingly, the trial must proceed and there is no need for physical detention, especially if Mir Shakil-ur-Rahman cooperates with NAB.
AKD Group founder and chairman Aqeel Karim Dhedhi said that if NAB thinks there is a benefit in a 34-year-old property transaction, he should start the trial in court. But until Mir Shakil-ur-Rahman is proven guilty, he shouldn’t be arrested. This not only violates basic rights but will also smell victimization of editorial independence. In the recent past, the business community has complained to the head of NAB with such haughty attitudes and he kindly listened and promised to overcome to restore confidence in the system.
Founder of Jahangir Siddiqui & Co. Ltd. Jahangir Siddiqui said that Mir Shakil-ur-Rahman must be allowed to defend himself as a free person. Everyone must be considered innocent until proven guilty.
