KARACHI:


Why are they implementing a different system in Karachi and Hyderabad if they are both a part of Sindh, asked Awami National Party’s (ANP) Shahi Syed at a press conference on Sunday.

“The ANP considers the reinstatement of the local government system an attempt to create an ethnic division in the province. We consider this process a direct attempt at creating a [names an ethnicity] province.” Shahi Syed added that Sindh Labour Minister Amir Nawab should stop working till the government reverted to the former commissionerate system. “If any political party is against this, then they should take the matter to the provincial assembly,” he said. “The decision to implement the local government system was forced upon the people.” He added that the government had assured the ANP that they would be consulted before any major decision were taken, but this did not happen. “The rejection of the ANP’s mandate has now become a habit,” he said. “The PPP forgets that we are also their coalition partner in Sindh.”

"Awami" National Party troubled by the grass root local government system!! interesting remark..."local government system was foreced upon the poeple"...well the base line is that this system - forced or not - did much for ordinary citizens in Pakistan - not just Karachi.
