KARACHI: Sindh Minister for Information, Archives and Labour Saeed Ghani claimed on Monday that the Sindh government has completed several development projects of historical value in Tharparkar following the directives of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto Zardari.

In a statement issued on Monday, Ghani asked the chief minister of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa to come and visit the development works going on in Tharparkar instead of expressing disapproval on something that he had no knowledge of.

The minister claimed that Bilawal had not only fulfilled his promise of the Thar Coal Project but had also delivered on the promise of a state-of-art road network across Tharparkar. Ghani said that the CM of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa should first look at the performance of his own government and then speak on someone else's.

He asked the CM what happened to the construction of 350 dams in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa which were promised by Prime Minister Imran Khan. "The CM of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa should concentrate on the elimination of polio in his province," said Ghani, adding that polio cases were on the rise in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa.

The CM should work on addressing the health issues of his people and should condemn the taking back of free health facilities in Punjab.

Referring to the 'Clean Karachi' campaign, Ghani said that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) minister was responsible for spreading litter in the city. "Ali Zaidi has littered all of Karachi in the name of cleaning stormwater drains," alleged Ghani.

Separately, during a meeting with the office-bearers of All Pakistan Newspapers Society, Ghani said that the Sindh government was committed to providing every possible facility to those affiliated with the print media. He said that the provincial government was devising a proper mechanism which would be followed for both the issuance of advertisements to newspapers and payments of their dues without any undue delay.
