My home province Sindh is confronted by a plethora of chronic problems. Rapid population growth, extreme poverty and poor governance have devastated the peaceful and progressive Sindhi society. It is a painful reality that our rulers and bureaucrats are unable to understand that this axiomatic truth of human resource management and good governance that without improving good governance it will not be possible to stabilise the alarming population growth rate and eradicate extreme poverty from the resources-rich province.

Indeed, Sindh is not poor, it is an enviably resources-rich province in Pakistan but it has been a victim of politics of successive past rulers and even the present one to keep its people poor because the poor and illiterate people can easily be exploited to perpetuate the feudal framework or aristocracy , plutocracy or ‘waderacracy’ in Sindh province.
