KARACHI  -  Leader of the Opposition in Sindh Assembly, Haleem Adil Sheikh, addressing a press conference along with former spokesperson of finance ministry Muzamil Aslam here at Sindh Assembly Building said on Saturday that incumbent government had to face embarrassment within a week and beggars are seen begging from IMF while on the other side nation is on the roads to fight real battle of independence.

Haleem Adil Sheikh said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) is setting new records everyday as public gathering is arranged in a city and nation respond to it by holding gatherings across the country, over a million people hold a gathering on social media while ‘imported government namanzoor’ has become the top trend.

Now it is not a movement of PTI but it has become a peoples’ revolution and entire nation is demanding fresh elections but alliance of 12 parties is afraid of elections because the case is now in the court of people who have to decide the fate of the country, he said.

PML-N and Bilawal Zardari were questioning the latter but handout issued after meeting of National Security Committee has proven foreign intervention and the stance of PTI as factual, Haleem Adil Sheikh said and lauded Asad Majeed who played a role of a respectful Pakistani. In past they might have received such threats but this time there was Imran Khan who took courageous stand, he added.

Haleem Adil Sheikh demanded a judicial commission headed by a judge of Supreme Court to probe into the letter-gate in presence of media while keeping its proceedings open. He said that foreign minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi and other officials should also be called for recording their statements on the issue.

The imported government could not shrug of the letter-gate easily as serious threats were extended to security and solidarity of the nation, he added.

Haleem Adil Sheikh also criticised imported government propaganda of Toushakhana and use of Helicopter and said that PPP and PML-N made mansions during their tenures while expenditure of Imran Khan’s USA tour was less then expenses of Limousine used by Nawaz Sharif. They declare their private houses as PM house and spend billions from tax payers’ money on them while condition of Banigala secretariat is in front of everyone.

Haleem Adil Sheikh said that Hammad Azhar inked an agreement for provision of 2,000 megawatt electricity to Karachi to facilitate industries and business while the imported government immediately after taking charge cut down additional supply of 300 MG to the metropolis and now people of Karachi were facing hardship due to loadshedding and scarcity of water in holy month of Ramazan.

He lamented MQM-P for not raising voice against injustice to people of Karachi and said that PTI will stage protest against power loadshedding in the biggest city of Pakistan.

Haleem Adil Sheikh strongly condemned Mehar incident in which 9 people including children burnt to death while affected communities were not provided any relief. He said that fire brigades were unavailable and no rescue and relief activities were taken so far while some relief items sent were looted by Jiyalas.

CM Sindh Murad Shah is urging corporate sector to come forward for provision of facilities to markets but he forgot that Karachi contributes 90 percent in revenue of Sindh while over 70 percent of tax collection is made of the city. If everything is supposed to be done by traders than what will be the role of government and the CM, he asked.

Referring to Nazim Jokhio murder case, Haleem Adil Sheikh termed it grave violation of human rights and said that heinous torture was done on Nazim Jokhio and now his widow and relatives were pressurised and coerced to withdraw the case.
