ISLAMABAD: Opposition Leader Syed Khursheed Shah on Friday demanded Governor Sindh Muhammad Zubair to relinquish his powers for running a pre-election campaign for a political party by soliciting votes from people, ARY News reported.
The opposition leader lambasted the governor for violating the constitutional laws and ethics by speaking in support of a particular party.
“The governor should be neutral” Shah remarked while demanding the incumbent provincial governor to tender his resignation.
“Its sheer violation of constitutional laws and morality, if Lahore’s ongoing projects and development appeal him, he should go there and join a ministry”, Shah added while conjuring up the overall situation of Punjab by comparing the ongoing projects with civic issues, water shortage, power and gas load-shedding at Punjab’s urban and rural centres.
It is worth mentioning here that the governor Sindh – while addressing the sixth International Finance Expo and Conference in Karachi yesterday – had implied that people criticizing Lahore’s development projects and progress on TV talk shows were responsible for deteriorating infrastructure and traffic system in Karachi.
The governor had urged the attendees then, “to vote for the political party, which developed Lahore in the upcoming elections next year”.
In response to Governor of Sindh’s address, Chief Minister Sindh Syed Murad Ali Shah slammed him for asking people to vote for a political party [ruling party as implied] and said that it is an unconstitutional act if a governor demonstrate support for a particular political party.
