Chief minister urges people to promote peace, brotherhood


Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah has urged the people to forge unity in their ranks, promote peace and brotherhood, and foil evil designs of elements engaged in destabilising the country. “The day of Eidul Azha gives us a clear message of sacrifice and tolerance,” he said in his message on the occasion of Eidul Azha. He said the philanthropists and well-to-do people should also not forget the poor and destitute people on this occasion and should make arrangements so that others could also be a part of the celebration.
Shah also asked the members of the Sindh cabinet and elected members of the Sindh Assembly to visit their respective constituencies and serve the flood-affected masses on the occasion so that they do not feel deprived. “You are liable to serve the people and inquire about their welfare and well-being,” he added. The chief minister said the Pakistan People’s Party leader Asif Ali Zardari has a mission of Benazir Bhutto to serve the masses and with this goal, the party members are also needed to follow the path and share the grievances of the people at grassroots level in a manner to solve the same.
“We are doing our best to provide relief to the people,” he said. He also said the rains displaced over 8.5 million people in the province and despite resource constraints, all-out efforts have been made to provide them relief, including food, medical and communication facilities. Referring to the law and order situation, he said our religion preaches peace and there is no room for acts of terrorism as Islam is a religion of peace.
