NAUNDERO: Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah along with Senior Minister for Education Nisar Khuhro arrived in Garhi Khuda Bux on Tuesday evening in connection with celebration of the 88th birthday of PPP founder leader Shaheed Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto.

Talking to media, Shah said that Sindh has many issues which are to be resolved in Council of Common Interest (CCI) for which we have already written a letter to the federal government to call its meeting.

He said since last eight months, the CCI meeting has not been convened. He said Sindh faces problems of water, gas, electricity and finance which will be decided in the meeting. He said there is one National Action Plan and another is Provincial Action Plan under which we have checked religious Madrassahs and their registration will be made after investigation.

He said federal government has to carry out legislation over this issue after which we will proceed further. Shah said that they are taking Kalabagh Dam seriously and those who are raising it know that three provinces are against it, hence, it will not be allowed to construct the dam because it is question of their life, adding people of Sindh, KPK, and Balochistan will never like Kalabagh Dam to be built and hoped it will not be constructed.

CM said Rangers have been allowed action in Karachi and and it is also acting in the interior where-ever needed. He said that Sindh police arrested those involved in Jacobabad and Shikarpur blasts and their cases will be sent to military court for trial and claimed that law & order situation across Sindh from Karachi to Kashmore has improved significantly. He said that target killing, extortion, kidnapping for ransom and terrorism cases had also considerably reduced after stern actions. Home Minister Suhail Siyal and other divisional & district administration officials were also present on the occasion along with PPP workers and district leaders.
