Everyone who has gone through the news about the sad demise of 21 children in Thar in Sindh must be in shock, whereas sixty thousands sacks of wheat are still lying in go downs of the area, waiting for distribution among affected persons. This is not the first example of such bad governance in Sindh. During the last devastating floods, more than 800 children died, due to measles in Sindh, despite medicine which was available in abundance, but they were not administered to all the children on time. Nevertheless, the chief minister of Sindh Syed Qaim Ali Shah, instead of making the concerned health minister, belonging to an ethnic group responsible, tried to shift the responsibility to the Secretary Health claiming that the Secretary did not pay any heed to his instructions.

I request the chief of the ruling PPP party in Sindh, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari to personally intervene and ensure good governance by making drastic administrative changes in addition to showing mercy on people of Sindh who are suffering from the worst governance ever seen in the province in the last six years.
