KARACHI - Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah has said that the arms cache recovered from a house located close to the headquarters of a political party in the city has raised many questions.

 “This is why people are pointing their fingers at the party,” he added.

Talking to media in Defence, the chief minister said that he had ordered a thorough inquiry into the recovery of huge quantity of arms from a house at Azizabad.

"The house is close to the headquarters of a party; therefore people are raising questions about the ownership of the weapons dumped there," he said and added that things would be crystal clear when inquiry would be completed. Replying to a question about NAB, he said it was surprising that it [NAB] had put mega scandals and inquiries on the back burner and had started a witch-hunt in Sindh.

"I don’t care what they [NAB] are doing, I am too busy in my work to serve the people of Sindh," he said and added "we are going to enhance the role of Anti-Corruption Establishment (ACE) by amending its law to conduct major inquiries," he disclosed.

Brushing aside the impression of corruption in Sindh, Murad said that it was an old issue. "I am working day and night to establish good governance. Once the governance is improved corrupt practices would automatically die down," he said.

Replying to another question regarding not terming MQM chief as traitor, the chief minister said that PPP chairman was a politician and his statements were well-thought out.
