KARACH\\I - The Sindh Assembly has unanimously passed two government bills into law and elected standing committees and other committees before it was prorogued late on Monday evening with acting speaker Ms Shehla Raza reading out the prorogue order. Law Minister Ayaz Soomro moved the motion to introduce Government Bill No 13 of 2008; the Sindh Public Property (Removal of Encroachment) (Amendment) Bill, 2008. He said that as the menace of encroachments on public property was on the rise so it was necessary to take some effective measures to check it and amend the Sindh Public Property (Removal of Encroachment) Act 1975 to achieve this goal. Supporting the bill, MQM Parliamentary Party Leader Sardar Ahmed said due to non-sufficient punishment, land grabbers encroached upon precious government lands so it was imperative to increase the penalty in order to curb this illegal practice. PPP legislator Anwar Mehar was of the view that punishment and penalty made no difference to the land grabbers until the writ of law was ensured and the culprits were dealt with iron hands. He accused the government servants of corroborating with land mafia. PPP members Ms. Shama Arif Mithani, Haji Munawwar Ali Abbasi, PML-Q member Ms. Nuzhat Pathan, NPP member Arif Mustafa Jatoi, ANP's Amanullah Mehsood, Sindh Ministers Abdul Haseeb, Rafique Engineer supported the bill but exhorted need for its implementation in letter and spirit. Law Minister assured the members that their suggestion would be incorporated. After a lengthy debate, Acting Speaker Ms. Shehla Raza asked the law minister to read the bill. The chair put the bill in the House for approval which was passed into law unanimously. Law Minister Ayaz Soomro again moved a motion for consideration of government Bill No 12 of 2008; the Sindh Wildlife Protection (Amendment) Bill, 2008. Substantiating the bill, the law minister submitted that the penalties provided for illegal hunting of rabbit (hare), deer, hog deer, Phara, Sindh Ibex, Urial, wild sheep, game animals such as partridge, sand grouse and waterfowl is not adequate. In order to curb illegal hunting of such animals, it is imperative to enhance the existing penalties. MQM parliamentary leader Sardar Ahmed, PML-Q members Ms. Nuzhat Pathan, Sheharyar Mehar, PPP legislator Anwar Mehar, Sindh Minister for Local Bodies' Agha Siraj Durrani and Minister for Wildlife Daya Ram spoke on the principles of bill.
