KARACHI: Information Minister Sharjeel Memon has appealed to the media as well as the political parties of the country to stop creating misperceptions about the recently signed Sindh Local Government Ordinance and said that people should not comment on it without having read the details.
“Political parties which are not even in the parliament or any assembly are expressing reservations over the ordinance. We are even ready to bring them to talks to hear out their reservations,” Memon said speaking to the media on Saturday.
Clarifying misconceptions about the ordinance, the minister said that some elements are just criticising the government without knowing the particulars. “They should hold a dialogue with us. Protesting is also everyone’s right, but there is a way of doing it… If you talk to us, we will help you and can even make amendments.”
He added that amendments could be made in the ordinance if the government finds it appropriate but that won’t happen under any external pressure.
“All the coalition parties, including PML-F and ANP, have been with us from the beginning and we will take them along in the future as well,” he maintained.
