Haleem Adil said no one could bring back deceased Mir Hassan, but at least his family is now taken care of. He said we want to end poverty from Pakistan and make this country a welfare state.

He said this is the third term of PPP government in Sindh, but the province is still without basic facilities. He said the people who were against the creation of Pakistan in 1947 should now see the conditions of the Muslims living in India. He said Indian government of Modi has become a terrorist and is busy in genocide of the Muslims.

He said the international community should raise voice against violation of human rights in India. He said minority communities are fully safe and secure in Pakistan. They would protest in Sindh along with the PTI against atrocities in India with minorities.

He said it is responsibility of whole nation to fight the calamity of corona virus. He said the federal government is working with the Sindh government in this regard. He said there is a lot of fear about this virus, adding we should take adequate precautionary measures. He said Sindh government should take needed steps and federal government would fully assist it.

He said PTI government is bringing big projects for the poor. He said had we not handled the situation due to loans of last 10 years, today the country would have been in worse economic conditions. He said we have launched Ahsas Program and are giving loans to youth. He said national economy was harmed due to corruption during previous governments.

He said the Sindh government wanted to transfer the IGP in illegal manner and we took the notice. Now when things were done in a legal way, the IGP was transferred.

He said had we not transferred the IGP, the Sindh government would have blamed the IGP for lawlessness in Sindh. He said we have no objection on Mushtaq Mahar, adding every officer should work as per law. He said those who were claiming that they would not talk to the governor, finally consulted with the Sindh governor. He said IGP was transferred after completion of a process.

He said we want a non-political police force, which works as per law and given citizens protection of life and property. He said the Sindh government should allow the IGP and other officers to work as per law. He said if any illegality in transfers of police officers is made we will see it. He said in Sindh the government hospitals are in bad shape and poor people are not getting medicines.

However, the mother of deceased Mir Hassan said she is thankful to Prime Minister Imran Khan. She said her son was disturbed due to abject poverty and he committed suicide.
