Announcing the launch of the process of disqualification of four members of the Sindh Assembly of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) who recently voted in favor of the Pakistan People’s Party candidate in the senatorial elections against the party’s policies, the leaders of Sindh of the PTI on Saturday said the Speaker of the Sindh Assembly had tarnished the image of the legislature due to its undemocratic attitude.
The said memories of the Quaid-e-Azam and the Liaquat Ali Khan were associated with the Sindh Assembly Building, but the actions of the incumbent Speaker undermined the sanctity of the House.
Sindh Assembly Opposition Leader Haleem Adil Sheikh, PTI Parliamentary Leader Khurrum Sher Zaman, MPA Raja Azhar and Leader Haji Muzaffar Shujra said this during a press conference at the provincial assembly. where they alleged that during the senatorial election, a market was seen inside the assembly where four PTI AMPs – Aslam Abro, Shahryar Shar, Karim Bakhsh Gabol and Dewan Sachanand – publicly sold their political conscience .
“Those who stubbornly and shamelessly sold their honor took their place on the benches of government. Under what law did the speaker grant them these seats? Sheikh asked.
“Sindh opposition has no representation in standing committees as the 2021-22 budget was passed without a speech from the Leader of the Opposition and the parliamentary leaders of the opposition parties,” he said. .
Ahead of the Senate election for the seat that became vacant after the disqualification of Federal PTI Minister Faisal Vawda, Zaman at a parliamentary party meeting decided to boycott the electoral process and all MPAs were urged to s abstain from voting. However, four MPAs came to the meeting and voted in favor of the PPP candidate. “Under Section 63 A of the Constitution, these MPAs must be declared disqualified,” Sheikh demanded.
“If these MPAs have any self-respect, they should resign and contest new elections because it was against the law and a reprehensible act to vote against the party,” observed the opposition leader.
He said he had written a letter to the speaker asking for the disqualification of these AMPs. “If legal action is not taken, the PTI would register a historic protest in the Sindh Assembly and a strong protest would also be registered against the speaker,” he promised.
He went on to say that there was a civilian dictatorship in Sindh and that the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) had abandoned the ideology of Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and Benazir Bhutto as it now followed what it said about Zardarism. “Bilawal Zardari’s march received a cold response from the public and he staged a flop show in Islamabad.”
Shiekh pointed out that Bilawal took no action when malnourished children were dying in Thar, Sindh was tainted with corruption, Karachi had turned into a dumping ground and all the necessary facilities were lacking in hospitals and schools. Sindh schools.
Movement without trust
Sheikh said the PPP believed in bargaining and also tried to buy off PTI MPs, but not a single member of the National Assembly would sell his conscience. “All PTI MPs and the masses of Pakistan stand firmly with Imran Khan who also enjoys the support of all coalition parties including PML-Q, GDA and MQM-P.”
Rumors about the PML-F have been said to have died down after Pir Pagara released a statement assuring his support for the prime minister.
Zaman claimed that the entire nation supported Imran Khan. “The largest public rally in Pakistan’s history will be held in D-Chowk Islamabad with the participation of people from across the country to express their support for Prime Minister Imran Khan,” he said.
He added that hundreds of caravans of people were ready to leave for Islamabad from Sindh.
Sindh’s biggest problem was Zardari who had ruined the province and multiplied the miseries of the people of the province, Zaman said, adding that clean water, flour, medicine, books and other basic facilities were n were not available to the people of Sindh while corruption and mismanagement prevailed everywhere.
He urged the people to strengthen the hands of the Prime Minister who had declared Asif Zardari as his first target after the failed no-confidence motion. “It was the responsibility of the people of Pakistan to contribute to the efforts of the PTI government to bring corrupt politicians to justice and support Imran Khan’s battle against Zardari, Shahbaz and Fazlur Rehman,” he said.
Shujra said the prime minister was a courageous and sincere leader who embraced a sovereign, nonpartisan foreign policy.
He warned opposition parties to stop using foul and derogatory language against Imran or else he would leak details of corruption and misdeeds of the PPP in front of the people, saying he was aware of the backgrounds of all PPP ministers.
