Preparing policies not governor’s job, says Murtaza Wahab


KARACHI: Advisor to Sindh Chief Minister (CM) on Information, Law and Anticorruption Barrister Murtaza Wahab has said that preparing policies for the province was not the Sindh governor’s responsibility.

The provincial advisor expressed these views while talking to media persons on Thursday outside the Sindh Assembly.

“The Sindh governor is creating hurdles in the way of legislation enacted by the Sindh Assembly. His actions reflect that he has no knowledge about the law of land,” Wahab added.

He said that Sindh had been deprived of its fundamental rights. “Federal transfers to the province are being curtailed,” he lamented.

He demanded of the federal government to immediately release Rs105 billion outstanding dues of Sindh so that development schemes could be completed in time.

The advisor also said that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government had no economic agenda; therefore, every common Pakistani was being made to suffer, adding that unemployment and price hikes have wreaked havoc on the lives of all Pakistanis.

He said that Rs300 billion have been borrowed by the PTI government from the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) in the last six months which is highest in 72 years history of the country.

Wahab added that they had observed nothing but u-turns of the PTI government since its inception and added that soon a “go Imran go” campaign would begin in the country.
