He added that any statement of the PPP Chairman is regard as policy of the Party.
Talking to a private Channel, Mr Chandio brushed aside the perception that PPP is standing with or supporting the federal government, adding that we are not standing with government but are supporting the democracy. To a query, he said that PTI chief Imran Khan always sees things with suspicion.
He said that whenever Nazims of MQM are elected in Karachi and Hyderabad, they always ignore and deprive the residential areas of Sindhi speaking people, where as PPP believes to serve the people without any linguistic, political or religious discrimination and affiliation.
Mr. Moula Bux Chadio said that when ever PPP came into power it always carried out mega development projects in urban as well as rural areas across the province without any kind of prejudice, which is one of the salient features of PPP Manifesto.
Mr Chandio said that people of Sindh are being meted out step motherly attitude in terms of load shedding adding that People are braving unscheduled and prolonged hours of power failure which has multiplied their woes and hardships in scorching summer where mercury is touching 53 degrees.
He also criticized the latest statement of the federal state Minister for Water and Power to continue load shedding in the approaching holy month of Ramzan adding that the federal government has miserably failed to resolve the issue of energy crisis which they claimed to address within six months after coming into power.
He added that in spite of lapse of three long years in government, the power crisis issue is not resolved and people are suffering due to negligence and ill-thought policies of the water and power ministry. He stated that even in the holy month of fasting people are not given facilities for fulfilling their religious obligation with ease but instead they will be subjected to hardships by continuing scheduled and unscheduled load shedding and frequent power outages.
In his separate statement released to media, Advisor on Information criticized the federal government for lack of coherence and clearance on foreign policy issues specially the drone attacks inside the Pakistan territory. He added that drone attacks are great threat to the sovereignty of the country but silence of the Prime Minister on this very important issue is meaningful.
He added that whenever any issue of national security arises, Mian Sahib goes on silence, he asked why PM Nawaz Sharif does not clear his stance on issues of national security “ if PM could address the nation on Panama issue, why he could not do the same on national security” he asked.
Mr Moula Bux Chandio asked that is the visit of PM to London more important or matters related to national security adding that we are the friends of America not the slaves, base of our relations with other nations must be on mutual respect and equality, adding that sovereignty of the country could not be compromised at any cost. Advisor Information further stated that PPP leadership has always adopted clear stance over national security issues and other foreign policy matters according to the aspirations of the people.
