No intention of imposing Governor’s Rule, emergency in Sindh: SAPM Awan
ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister’s Advisor on Information and Broadcasting Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan said that the Federal Government had no intention to enforce Governor’s Rule or emergency in Sindh.

Dr Firdous said people of Sindh are expecting that their province’s rulers will come up with a solid strategy to address their problems.
She said Sindh Government has failed to provide relief to the people of Sindh, especially urban areas of the province.
Prime Minister’s Advisor on Information said Federal Government will leave no stone unturned in serving the people of Sindh, who have been ignored in the past.

Federal Law Minister Farogh Naseem on Wednesday hinted at imposing Article 149 (4) in Karachi to address issues faced by the city on an immediate basis.
The authority of the provincial government could not be set aside with misuse of the powers delegated under the constitution, Saeed Ghani said while commenting on the federal law minister’s statement.
