KARACHI A Sindh cabinet meeting convened Thursday by Sindh Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah decided to take disciplinary action against the violators of party policies and discipline. But the hurriedly called meeting of ruling partys ministers and advisers was wrapped up soon after differences surfaced among PPPs provincial ministers when some cabinet members defended partys dissident leader Dr Zulfiqar Mirza. Sources said that some ministers who supported Dr Zulfiqar Mirza, especially his views on the local government system, left the CM House, the venue of the meeting, in protest. The remaining members, the majority of the cabinet members, however decided that firm disciplinary action would be taken against those ministers, MPAs, and party office-bearers who violate the party discipline and speak against the partys policies. It may be noted that about half a dozen provincial ministers of party and over two dozen MPAs of Sindh Assembly met the partys firebrand leader Dr Zulfiqar Mirza and supported his stance over proposed legislation on local government. Earlier, the chief executive also took notice of activities of ministers, who have been served with show cause notice. Sources in the CM House told The Nation that Sindh Information Minister Sharjeel Inam Memon, Excise Minister Mukesh Kumar Chawla, Sindh Finance Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah and other cabinet ministers supported the views of majority of the partys lawmakers, who have opposed the revival of Nazim-led local government system, which is likely to be tabled in Sindh Assembly in agreement with the MQM. The above said ministers, sources said, supported the opinion of Mirza and said they will continue meeting him. Sources said that Sindh Home Minister Manzoor Wassan and some other ministers interrupted them and termed it violation of party discipline, which he said was intolerable. Sources confirmed that on the request of home minister, the chief minister told the cabinet members that action would be taken against those ministers who have violated the party line, telling them that President Asif Ali Zardari has also taken serious notice of their activities. Sources privy to the meeting conformed that Manzoor Wassan criticised Dr Mirza, which annoyed the ministers supporting Mirza, leading to exchange harsh words. Later, the four ministers, who are supporting Dr Mirza, left the meeting in protest, sources said. The CM House, however, denied the report that some ministers left the meeting. An official statement said that some ministers left the meeting to attend call of nature and some other urgent matters but for a while and they came back and attended the full session, and no one had left in the protest.
