Adil says Nawaz needed to visit Shikarpur victims

KARACHI: Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) Sindh President Haleem Adil Shaikh said on Tuesday that after a huge mortality in Shikarpur blast, Prime Minister Mian Nawaz Sharif should have to go there for solidarity while National Action Plan should be extended countrywide after happening of such incident.

Addressing a press conference at Karachi Press Club, he said after his visit to shikarpur he decided to conduct a press conference here for informing of post-blast situation of Shikarpur. He said despite passage of four days, no proper action had been taken for relief.

He claimed that half of mortalities occurred due to lack of emergency aid. He said shikarpur being a district has huge population but only 25 doctors were available in Civil Hospital Shikarpur against required number of 60. He said only two doctors out of 25 were were present in the hospital during shifting of bodies to the healthcare.

He said: “If proper security had been ensured in these places, we had not to see this situation.” He said government had failed to provide security to citizens.

Shaikh said: “We are actually in the state of threats and we do not have any plan to tackle this terrorism.” He said efforts were being made to make Sindh like Waziristan.

Complaining about PM Nawaz Sharif’s visit to Karachi, he said the Shikarpur blast happened at a time when the PM was in Karachi but he did not bother to visit Shikarpur for solidarity with people, which was extremely embarrassing while on the other side ministers were showing their shameful attitude in the assemblies. He said only passing the resolutions was not solution to any problem.

He said muhalla committees should be formed at police station levels and funds given to commissioners for proper distributions. He said: “We will have to establish a plan at national level and the institutes will have to be ready for handling every situation.”
