By: Kamran Khamiso Khowaja
SUJAWAL: Senator Sassui Palijo has said that Azam Swati should step down as Minister for Railways after the Ghotki Inferno adding that PM Khan,s government had failed to revamp Pakistan railways. She was expressing these views with the local journalists in Sujawal after offering condolences to senior Journalist Dr. Aslam Azad on the demise of his father Ashiq Ali Khowaja who passed away a few days ago. She was accompanying Information Secretary PPP district Sujawal Sooraj Sujawali and Chairman Sindhi language authority Dr. Mohammad Ali Manjhi on the occasion.
She further said that the Federal government was not taking measures for the development of Pakistan Railways despite knowing the loopholes in the department. ” I have raised my voice regarding the declining standard of railways, power and water crisis in the senate but didn’t get any response” she said.
Talking about PDM,s future she said that PDM was posing no threat to the Federal government after the withdrawal of the Pakistan People’s Party and it was Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari who convinced all parties to join PDM. PDM without PPP is a soulless body; she claimed.
She said that the whole of Sindh was facing a drought-like situation owing to the anti-people policy of the Federal Government that had plunged the people of Sindh into crisis. Sassui said that Sindh was not getting water according to the accord of 1991 and the IRSA and the Federal Government were busy feeding Punjab.
Answering a query regarding the BTK issue she said that Chairman PPP Bilawal Bhutto Zardari had taken notice of the whole episode and directed authorities concerned to release the arrested protesters. “Peaceful protest is the constitutional right of every citizen and I wonder why the decision of the Supreme Court has not been executed yet”. she said.
