Chief minister observed that noose around the prime minister’s neck for looting the public money through offshore companies was being tightened.
“Two judges had already declared PM Nawaz guilty of being involved in a mega-corruption scam and thus he had no justification to remain in office anymore.”
Murad welcomed Arbab Lutuf’s decision to join PPP, terming it a “timely and wise step.” He said he hoped that Lutuf would continue to serve the people of Thar along with other PPP leaders.
He said that Sindh government is fully committed to serving the people of Thar, adding that he hoped that thousands of Tharis would get jobs in the various projects being launched by mining firms in the desert region.
Murad said, “I have already directed the concerned functionaries to complete the remaining construction of the Islamkot airport so that the foreign engineers engaged in mining and power production projects could travel easily.”
He said, “PPP government in Sindh has left no stone unturned to help Tharis in their difficult times.” Thar was making progress by leaps and bounds after the work on the Thar coalfield picked up the great momentum, he added.
“Coal reserves from Thar would put an end to the energy crises,” the chief minister claimed.
