ishrat salim | 6 years ago | Reply Again it is due to the intervention of SC that action was initiated against illegal hydrants which was under Mr Sarjeel Memon till he was the minister. If SC & Army has to take notice of all corruption, mismanagement cases in Sindh, than what is CM Sindh is doing ?
