PTI govt wants to take over Karachi under guise of natural disaster: Bilawal
August 13, 2020
KARACHI (92 News) - Criticising the federal government, PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari on Thursday said that the PTI govt wanted to take over Karachi under the guise of a natural disaster. Addressing a press conference, the PPP chairman said that if the unconstitutional move is given the shield of the judiciary, it will be an attack on this land. "It was too late for the federation to realize that there was a natural calamity in the provincial capital of Sindh," he added. Bilawal Bhutto said that the PPP participated in legislating on the FATF, keeping politics at bay on national issues. "The government desired to take some favourite amendments under the guise of FATF but we prevented it from becoming a black law," he added. "To date, one of Pakistan's provinces has been deprived of its rightful share to the NFC Award; we have been demanding our rights since ages," teh PPP chairman said. "Last year, there was a shortfall of Rs116 billion [in the NFC Award] from Sindh and it's Rs200 billion this year. This injustice is continuously done to every province in Pakistan," he said. Bilawal further said if the NFC award issued before the 18th Amendment was follow, then it must also be understood that Sindh has been assigned more work and more responsibilities subsequently. "The centre is playing politics on natural calamities and crises at a time when we and our people are in dire straits. We see malicious intentions and these will undermine our national integrity," he warned. Such actions, he added, would undermine the countrywide efforts and the national cohesion. "Whenever there is a national issue, the PPP is always set aside. "Karachi is not only a significant factor for Sindh's economy but for the national one as well. If our rights are not safeguarded then the entire Pakistan will bear the brunt," he warned.
