Novice politicians promoting ‘dangerous trend’ of mudslinging politics, says Murad

KARACHI: Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad on Monday said that some novice politicians have dangerously fashioned a politics of mudslinging – this is a disastrous trend and it is bound to defame the politicians, political parties and the political system at large.

“This must be stopped in the larger interest of the country and its people” he said while talking to media just after inaugurating Bahria Model School (BMS), Khalid SRE at Younisabad in Karachi.

He was accompanied by provincial ministers, Nisar Khuhro, Jam Mehtab Dahar and Mohammad Ali Malkani. Secretary Education (Schools) Aziz Uqaili, PD Karachi projects Niaz Soomro and others were also present.

The chief minister said that the dirty politics brought in vogue is not going to serve the wishes of any political leader but it is damaging the entire body politic of the country.

“For God sake, stop this indecent attitude and try to resolve all the outstanding issues in the parliament,” he suggested.

To a query, he said that in August our country came into being, therefore he [Nawaz Sharif] should abandon the politics of agitation on the GT road and start working for the development of the country in this month.

He said he has no time to listen to the politics of abuses and agitation.

“I am busy in serving the people of my province. We are working for the development of infrastructure, improvement of health services and education,” he said.

Syed Murad Ali Shah said that the politics is the name of service to the people but some people have made it a dirty business which is bound to cause them heavy loss.

“Therefore, we should work for the development of the country and betterment of the people,” he said.

Earlier, the chief minister addressing the inauguration ceremony of the BMS, Khalid SRE said that for improvement of health and education sectors he was working day and night.

“Despite my serious and sincere efforts, I have not achieved congenial results in education sector,” he said and added “yes, with the partnership of private sector we have improved health services,” he said.

The chief minister said that he would encourage Public Private Partnership (PPP) in education sector.

“Our partnership with Bahria is old one and we are working together at Petaro and Sanghar Cadet Colleges and this partnership is further strengthening,” he said and invited other forces to come over and work with the provincial government for improving educational system.

“We have made a considerable expansion in education sector right from primary to college and college to university level but now time has come to consolidate them but making them best institutions,” he said and added “this would be possible when private sector, teachers, parents and civil society would come over to extend help hand with the government,” he said.

Commander Karachi Rear Admiral Athar Mukhtar in his speech briefed the chief minister about the school constructed by Pakistan Naval Education Trust for Rs110 million in which the Sindh government has contributed Rs60 million.

He said that the school area spread over 2.3 acres land with a ground plus three floor building with 32 class rooms.

Athar Mukhtar said that there was a provision of 15400 students in the school who would be receiving education right from pre-primary to college level. The admission policy is very simple that the civilians have been given equal quota – means there is a 50:50 ration for civilian and forces students.

The commander Karachi added that presently 700 students are enrolled in the school where admissions are still open.

Murad inaugurated the school by unveiling the plaque and also visited the class rooms where students were receiving education.
