HYDERABAD: The Qaumi Awami Tehreek president, Ayaz Latif Palijo, has urged the Supreme Court to take notice and constitute a joint investigation team (JIT) to probe alleged corruption by the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP)-led Sindh government. “Nawaz Sharif had closed his eyes to the destruction and corruption in Sindh,” alleged Palijo, while addressing a party rally on Sunday.
“The Supreme Court which, disqualified the prime minister over iqama, should form a JIT to conduct inquiry of [PPP Co-Chairperson Asif Ali] Zardari’s mafia.” Palijo said Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah, Home Minister Sohail Anwar Siyal, MPA Sharjeel Memon and other PPP leaders have also obtained iqama visas from the UAE, adding that they will also face similar disqualifications.
He went on to allege that the post of the provincial inspector-general of police has been deprived of its powers so that the next general elections can be manipulated with the help of station house officers.
Palijo alleged that the Sindh Public Service Commission has been made dysfunctional so that tens of thousands of government jobs can be sold or given to their cronies.
