KARACHI - Over 50,000 Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) who arrived from Swat and other areas of troubled NWFP in Sindh couple of month back will start leaving for their home next week in vehicles provided by the government of Sindh, it was announced by Sindh Home Minister Dr. Zulfiqar Mirza at a press conference held at the CM house here on Saturday. He informed the media that the Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah had recently discussed all the details related to this matter in a meeting and finalised for facilitating smooth return of the IDPs of Swat and other areas of NWFP who had entered Sindh. An amount of Rs100 million has been sanctioned for hiring transport and for providing food and security to the returnees who would be dropped at their doors in various areas of the NWFP. A four-member committee headed by Home Minister Dr. Zulfiqar Mirza with its members Sindh Labour Minister Ameer Nawab, Transport Minister Akhtar Jadoon, advisor to Chief Minister Rashid Rabbani, Special Assistant to CM Waqar Mehdi and acting divisional president PPP Asmat ullah will look after the matter. He said that two centres had been established for de-registration of IDPs; one of them at the office of former DC West while the other at the office of Town Nazim Landhi. Dr Mirza said that certain unscrupulous elements had tried to take undue political mileage by raising hue and cry on the issue of IDPs but the government did not respond to their noises because we knew that the IDPs would go back home when the situation improved in their areas. Our Shaheed leaders Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto and his valiant daughter Benazir Bhutto had taught us that truth always succeeded. Our intentions were honest and the concerns of those who raised hue and cry were unfounded and more political to which the government had nothing to do with, he added. He said that the government had given the traditional Sindh hospitality to the IDPs and welcomed them with open arms and now they were returning to their home safe and sound. When asked about number of IDPs registered with government, he said that around 50,000 plus IDPs came to Sindh, 90 percent of them stayed in Karachi while more than one thousands stayed with their relatives in interior parts of the province. Responding to a query, Mirza said that Sindh government was in contact with NWFP government in connection with sending home IDPs. Those IDPs whose areas have been cleared will be sent home first. Replying to another question, he said Rs25, 000 that has been announced for the returnees would be paid by the federal government when they reached their homes. More over, the federal government was planning to give package for their rehabilitation, he added.
