Karachi, February 23:
Pak Sarzameen Party Chairman Syed Mustafa Kamal on Wednesday said that if the PPP-led Sindh government did not implement the signed agreement with PSP in letter and spirit, the responsibility of law and order would fall on the provincial government. We will now stage sit-ins not just one place but several places in the city. The Sindh government is aware of our strength and our perseverance, our preparations are complete. The PSP is fighting for the rights of the people from Karachi to Kashmore. We have made constitutional and legal demands not for any personal gain but to make Pakistan, especially Sindh, strong and prosperous.
The PPP government in Sindh knows that we are not like those who make deals at the cost of greater public interest. He expressed these views while addressing a meeting of office bearers of Karachi Division at Pakistan House. Syed Mustafa Kamal further said that any breach of agreement by Sindh government would be an anti-people and anti-Sindh move.
PPP will have to devolve powers and finances to local body representatives across Sindh in accordance with the spirit of Article 140A of the Constitution and to make districts financially empowered though the devolution and distribution of equatable share of PFC Award. Without it, public problems will not be solved and the province will not develop. The country can no longer run like this.
After the 18th Amendment, powers and resources were transferred from the federation to the provincial governments but were not devolved to the district, town and UC levels. If they are still withheld by the provincial government, the repeal of the 18th Amendment will be inevitable, otherwise the country will not be able to function economically.
