PTI Leader and President Karachi region Khurram Sher Zaman with central leader Haleem Adil Shaikh severely criticized the Sindh government over massive corruption on R.O Plants and patronage of dacoits in Sindh in a presser held at Insaf House, Karachi.
Khurram Sher Zaman said that we are exposing another corruption scandal where 33 billion Rupees of taxpayer’s money was looted by the rulers over installation of R.O Plants.
This project was imitated 7 years ago and it cost has gone from 13 billion to 33 billion.He expressed dismay over NAB not taking any notice on this mega corruption scandal. “Pak Oasis had to install 750 R.O plants in three years whereas only 578 plants were installed and 272 R.O plants are missing”He revealed that 90-95 percent of these Reverse Osmosis (R.O) plants are out of order now.
Khurram Sher Zaman lashed out at Bilawal Bhutto on his praise towards Sindh government and asked him to inquire his father about Asia’s biggest R.O plant. Plants installed in Lyari and Kimari are non-functional.
Water board is also involved in this regard as tens of millions of Rupees were given for maintenance of these plants but no record was maintained of these.
“Corrupt officers of water board are also part of this great fraud. All R.O plants in Thar are out of order, more to add, the plants installed in the constituency of CM Murad Ali Shah are non-functional. 150 million was spent on a single R.O Plant while the same amount was spent on operating maintenance but all went into corruption. 38 out of 40 R.O plants installed in Manchar lake are non-operational”.
He added that Sindh government gave this project to Pak Oasis and the person who got the contract is Umer Gilani. A proper investigation must be made on Former Chief Minister Sindh Syed Qaim Ali Shah, Finance minister and current CM Murad Ali Shah and all chief secretaries on this mega corruption and installation of faulty water plants.
He demanded to investigate upon all former and current minister involved in these including Nasir Shah, Sharjeel Memon, Ovais Tappi and Jam Khan Shoro.He announced to approach NAB and anti-corruption department for this issue and demanded the federal government to investigate this issue.
“We also request the Chief Justice Pakistan to take a suo motto notice on this very issue”, he added.
Talking on the occasion, central leader and parliamentary leader PTI Sindh Haleem Adil Shaikh also criticizes the PPP’s government and said that Sindh is experiencing dacoit rule under PPP’s government.
Dacoits in Sindh are returning with force as some of them have released pictures of children showing arms. “Now the Sindh government has an IG of their own wish.
There are police officers who are awarding peace prices to the dacoits. Another Lyari gang is in making. Dacoits are roaming freely, consolidating power and took people hostage in “Kacha” areas of the province while PPP ministers are supporting them”, he accused.
He added that after 18th amendment, law and order is a provincial subject, Rangers have been limited to the Karachi city. Rangers should be given powers in whole province, if this trend doesn’t stop, it will be bloodshed in those areas.
Mr. Shaikh lashed out on appointment of SSPs on contacts and bribe according to Dr. Rizwan’s report. Sindh government has failed in protecting lives and wealth of the people as street crime has spread far and wide in Karachi. He criticized Bilawal Bhutto while adding that Bilawal wants to go to Islamabad with Maulana Fazal ur Rehman’s support.
We are ready for your movement.He requested the Prime Minister, Chief Justice and Army Chief to take notice of this situation.
“A dacoit gang is being made for the next elections. 16 billion wheat was eaten by rats of PPP. Wheat was sold on fake cheques and now these are stored in go downs of PPP supported people.
Sindh’s food department is in debt of 80 billion while 11 billion were given in subsidies”, he informed.
