In recent past, CM Sindh made a statement that PPP and MQM are working together for provincial autonomy. People are groaning under unbearable weight of compounded problems of load shedding, law and order, high prices etc. But the CM is focused totally upon the autonomy issue and nothing else besides. Islamabad understands very well that provincial autonomy will prove to be the beginning of the end for Pakistan. Any more provincial autonomy than this will weaken the centre and may, sometime later, lead to secession. I do not understand why PPP appoints such incompetent persons on important posts. I think Mustafa Kamal has done an excellent job so far as an administrator. I wish he becomes the Chief Minister some day. -Z. ISRAR, Karachi, via e-mail, September 15.
