Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah has said he will spend most of his time to resolve issues of the people instead of bragging about his work.
“I will not speak but my work will speak for itself. I will spend all the time I have to work for the people of Sindh,” Shah told reporters after his first-ever meeting with Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif as Sindh chief minister at the Prime Minister’s House on Friday.
About his meeting with the premier, Shah said he discussed several issues with the prime minister and the former’s response was positive.
“The PM assured his complete cooperation, saying he would direct his ministers for cooperation with Sindh government.”
Responding to a question regarding extension in Rangers’ powers in Sindh, the chief minister said the issue was resolved, and the paramilitary forces were granted policing powers for 90 days in Karachi under the Anti-Terrorism Act 1997.
Shah contended that the law and order situation in Sindh was “not as bad as it was being painted in the media”.
“I have been given maximum power by Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leadership to work as the province’s chief minister and I will exercise all my powers to make things better for the people,” Shah claimed. The CM, however, said he would seek advice from the party’s leadership from time to time.
About alleged corruption in the province, Shah said it was issue of the entire country but he “will not tolerate any corruption in Sindh”.
