LARKANA: Chief Minister Sindh Syed Qaim Ali Shah today criticized federal government for allegedly bypassing the PPP-led provincial government over Rangers powers in Karachi. 

“I have revealed it six months ago that they are going to grab Sindh. I believe that Chaudhry sahib wants to takeover Sindh,” Shah said, without naming Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, in his address to a large number of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) workers at Garhi Khuda Bukhsh town of Sindh.

“We have served Sindh. In democracy, one person’s decision can’t be enforced,” said Shah at the public meeting organized to mark 8th death anniversary of slain PPP chairperson Benazir Bhutto at ancestral graveyard of Bhuttos.

The gathering was also addressed by senior PPP leaders Manzoor Watto, Aitzaz Ahsan, Raja Pervez Ashraf and others.

“Some elements want to weaken PPP and take advantage of peace in Karachi that was forged with our commitment. We are thankful to Prime Minister and army chief who strengthened us, but this is not any single person’s achievement,” he said.

“No one can put aside Sindh assembly’s decisions,” said Shah, amid a charged atmosphere and slogans of jiay Bhutto (long live Bhutto).
