    Shah Abdul Latif University (Salu), Khairpur, is a national institution a place of learning for the people of Kahirpur and the rest of us Pakistanis and was created from our national resources and is still financed from the people’s money. It can be called and would truely be a personal gift of anyone including Z A Bhutto or the present Chief Minister of Sindh if they would give their personal wealth for this purpose. It’s good that PM Zuklfiqar Ali Bhutto had the wisdom to use our money to create it and Qaim Ali Shah the wisdom to ensure its continuity with our resources. But, making it sound like SALU being a personal gift of anyone individual is great injustice as well as denial of a fact. Z A Bhutto did what a PM should have and what Qaim Ali Shah is doing what a Chief Minister must, no more no less.
