Sindh CM demands CCI meeting over gas issue


KARACHI: Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah on Thursday demanded to call a meeting of Council of Common Interest (CCI) on the issue of gas shortage in the province.

While addressing the Sindh Assembly, the chief minister asserted that he would write to the federal government to summon the meeting at the earliest. He maintained that there are three members in CCI from Sindh belonging to three different parties.

“We expect that these members will favour this cause as their own to have the issue resolved,” the Sindh CM said.

The chief minister, while expressing optimism, said that the federal government will give Sindh its rights as per the law and constitution. He was of the view that problems of provinces cannot be solved without active interest of the federal government.

Talking about the power generation issue, the chief minister informed the House that power generation from Thar Coal will start from next month.
