PPP won’t let Karachi become a separate province: Shah

SUKKUR: Chief Minister Sindh Syed Qaim Ali Shah on Saturday asserted that Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) would not let Karachi become a separate province, ARY News reported.

Talking to media at the convocation of a private varsity here, Qaim Ali Shah said that Peoples Party believes in the unity of Sindh.

“Altaf Hussain used to call him son of Sindh, while Asif Ali Zardari had too referred to him [MQM chief] as a comparatively newer inhabitant of the province,” he reminded.

In reaction to Shah’s statement, Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) leader Nadeem Nusrat said that the province was demanded by the participants of yesterday’s political gathering in Karachi.

“At which, Altaf Hussain had pressed for the formation of new administrative units in all provinces, not just in Sindh,” he clarified.

“Had the chief minister resolved the issues of urban Sindh, then people would not need to demand for a new province,” Nusrat lamented.
