The press briefing given by the Chief Minister Sindh regarding the death of more than 120 children, during the last three months because of famine and drought in Tharparker was pathetic, to say the least. He admitted his fault for the tragedy but lost his temper when a journalist asked a pertinent question. All the journalist did was to point out how indifferently and incompetently the Sindh government had tackled the issue.

The Chief Minister instead of being irritated should have resigned along with his cabinet during the briefing, after admitting his fault. That would have been the real spirit of democracy and collective responsibility of the cabinet, but unfortunately one disgusting politician resigns there are twenty more unethical politicians waiting to step in their shoes.
