MQM blasts wildlife authorities


Muttahida Qaumi Movement’s (MQM) members of parliament Saleem Bandhani and Ashfaq Mangi on Thursday criticised the Karachi zoo authorities for their alleged negligence which led to the deaths of quite a few animals.

In a statement issued by the above mentioned officials, the carelessness of the officials of the wildlife department was pointed out due to which apparently dozens of peacocks had died in Tharparkar region. The MPA’s stated that the issue was being hushed up as if nothing had happened while priceless wildlife of the province was dying out due to the department’s negligence. The MQM leaders blamed corrupt and inept wildlife officials for the loss of numerous species which were of invaluable importance to not only the province, but for the nation. They said peacocks in the Tharparkar were being poached off while the concerned officer sat idly with irresponsible and careless attitudes. Mangi and Bandhani have immediate steps to curtail the losses of Tharparkar’s peacocks, a large number of whom have died owing to an unidentified disease which seems to have the wildlife department in a fix.
