Sharjeel complains from federal govtJune 9, 2015
KARACHI: Sindh Minister for Information & Local Government Sharjeel Inam Memon on Wednesday said the people of Sindh were ready to take to the streets if funds for development projects were not released and injustice in gas and electricity matters were not stopped by the federal government.
“The policy of reconciliation should not be taken as our weakness. Karachi needs more water and other basic facilities. It is regrettable that Sindh is not getting its due share from the federal government,” he said while addressing the stone laying ceremony of K-4 bulk water supply project.
He said it was the responsibility of the federal government to work in collaboration with provinces, however behavior of the federal government was deplorable. It seemed as if only Punjab was Pakistan.
Sharjeel said fund was to be allocated for Green Line bus in previous budget, but it has been late by one year.
“The biggest robbery is being made on gas by violating the constitution. The constitution suggests that the province where gas is being generated will get more share. LNG is not the need of Sindh but it burden is being put on our province. A conspiracy is being hatched to transfer industries from the province,” he said.
