JACOBABAD  - Pakistan Peoples’ Party-Shaheed Bhutto chairperson Ghinwa Bhutto said on Wednesday that the corrupt rulers cannot resolve the public issues and the government’s new local system would convert the interior Sindh into a Gaza.

Talking to media after visiting the camps of the rain-affectees, she charged that the sitting regime was patronising thieves, dacoits and killers, saying there is no writ of the government anywhere across the country. She said the government has no moral right to continue its rule. Regretting heavy damages during the recent spell of rains and flooding, she said had the government focused to improve drainage system in the province, a lot of damage could have been averted.  Strongly criticising the new local government system in Sindh, she said with its implementation, Karachi would become an Israel and interior Sindh a Gaza. She said people of Sindh working in Karachi or seeking employment in the city would be severely affected with the new local government system.

She said her party has already announced a long march against the new LG system, adding she is ready to talk to anyone on the issues of Sindh. She said instead of dividing Sindh province, the government should spend its energies on controlling Balochistan situation. She said the government should stop the cruelty being shown in Balochistan. PPP-SB leaders Sardar Taj Muhammad Domki, Syed Aslam Shah, Nadeem Qureshi and others were present.

Meanwhile, hundreds of rain-hit people staged a big protest demo here against the government for not providing them ration and other relief goods.

As per details, hundreds of rain affectees living in makeshift camps on the bypass road outside Jacobabad town staged a protest demo and burnt tires against non-provision of relief goods, especially ration, to them.

They raised slogans against the government and alleged that the relief goods were being distributed amongst the cronies of ruling political parties and landlords.

They demanded that food and ration be given to them as their children were facing starvation. Later, DSP Headquarters, held talks with the protesters and persuaded them to end their road blockade.

Meanwhile, Deputy Commissioner Muhammad Rafiq Buriro visited some of the educational institutes which have been made relief camps for the rain affectees. Buriro directed ADO Abdul Shakoor Banglani and Sadiq Katohar to resume educational activities there, shifting the affectees some other places. He also took serious notice of non-functioning of schools and also urged the teaching staff to restore the curriculum activities.
