SINDH: Sindh Minister for Local Bodies, Agha Siraj Durrani has said that the Commissioner Karachi and the district deputy commissioners are conspiring against the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) government.

During a telephonic conversation with Express News, Durrani said that the implementation of the notification for the Commissioner Karachi becoming the Administrator, District Council is a conspiracy.

Durrani said that he and the Secretary for Local Bodies had opposed the notification but the Commissioner Karachi misled the Chief Secretary and Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah and got the notification implemented.

Durrani said that all five deputy commissioners along with the Commissioner Karachi are officers belonging to the revenue department but want to gain control of Karachi.

    Let Karachi be governed by Karachites.

    Local Govt which is the true essence of democracy should be brought back and elections for mayor held in Karachi. That is what Karachites want.

    Most Karachites hate PPP because of its anti-Karachite stance.Recommend

    Agha Siraj Durrani:

    After the MQM wrapped up, you never have the courage to hold elections of City Government as PPP did not have the majority to grab enough seats to run the City Government.

    Now you are blaming the Commissioner and the Deputy Commissioners that they are conspiring against the PPP government?

    Tell me, who introduced the Commissionerate system and who made the Commissioner and the Deputy Commissioners in Karachi?

    It was the PPP government and no one else.

    Mind that now PPP days are numbered and you do not have any say in Karachi, it is better to pass your time quietly, without raising any objection.

    Had MQM remained in the City government, there would not have been so many strikes and riots in the city.

    Good buy and have a quite weekend. Recommend
