Chairman Syed Mustafa Kamal on Monday said that the most important point of the PSP’s local body draft is the formula by which financial resources received by the provinces under the NFC will be transfered to grass root level through PFC, and without implementation on this mechanism, the authority of the LG departments is meaningless.
The nation should ask the rulers not for bread, cloth, and shelter but for the authority and resources to earn bread, cloth and shelter so that every Pakistani has access to welfare facilities.
The PPP-led provincial government is listening to our demands, We are sitting here until our demands are met.
Though PSL is very important for the image of Pakistan but people who are deprived of basic facilities like electricity, water, and gas have no concerns about PSL.
He expressed these views while talking to media persons on the second day of sit-in at Fawarah Chowk under PSP against the black local body law.
President PSP Anis Kaim Khani and other Central leaders were also present on this occasion.
Mustafa Kamal added that Pakistan’s administrative and financial situation has deteriorated. The funds received by the province from the federation are not transferred to the local government level. He said that the province gets Rs. 1200 billion annually from the federation but there is no education, no gas, no drinking water, no medicine. Just as an owner of a company acts as a driver, accountant, manager etc at the same time, the company cannot function properly.
Similarly, the four Chief Ministers have retained all the powers and resources. That is why this country is not functioning. We have not yet become independent nation.
I had invested Rs 300 billion in Karachi in my Mayorship time, and the city was ranked amongst four fastest growing cities in the world. He asked PPP’s corrupt rulers of Sindh to give account of Rs 12,000 before blaming the federation, Punjab and Establishment of depriving Sindh of its rights.
