PPP is part of fed govt. but will not tolerate injustice with Sindh – Sharjeel
Sindh has taken up the gas and power load shedding issue with fed govt.
Federal govt. is responsible to ensure judicious distribution of resources among the federating units as per constitution.
Test drive of People’s Bus Service has successfully been conducted in Sukkur and soon regular service will be launched.
Sindh Minister for Information and Transport – Sharjeel Inam Memon said on Thursday that Pakistan People’s Party is definitely a part of the federal cabinet, but they cannot tolerate injustice with Sindh in any case.
While talking to the newsmen at Sindh assembly building, he said this in response to a question about load shedding of gas and electricity in the province.
“Pakistan People’s Party has raised this issue with the federal government,” he said and demanded from the federal government to take notice of the load shedding of gas and electricity in Sindh and to ensure due share of gas of Sindh under the constitution.
He remarked that it is the responsibility of the federal government to ensure the judicious distribution of resources among the federating units. He added that due to the gas crisis, our industrialists and traders are worried.
Talking about the People’s Bus Service, minister said the bus service has been launched from Karachi to provide affordable and comfortable travel facilities to the public. “After its operations in Karachi, Larkana and Hyderabad, the successful test drive was conducted in Sukkur the other day. In the current month its formal operations for the public will be started in Sukkur,” he said.
He said that Punjab and KPK are facing flour shortage and rates of the commodity skyrocketed there due to non-serious policies of provincial governments of PTI.
“Sindh government is providing flour to the public at Rs.65 per kg. The subsidized flour is being provided to the public through 1100 stalls and mobile shops in every city and area of the province,” Sharjeel said.

He said that Imran Khan had made a big blow to the cause of the flood victims. He diverted attention from the flood victims by the long march and now is talking of dissolving the assemblies.
