K arachi: Adviser to Sindh Chief Minister, Sharmila Faruqi has criticised Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif and Sindh National Front (SNF) chief Mumtaz Bhutto for using the ‘Sindh card.’
In a statement, she asked them not to try to become the ‘champion of the interests of the people of Sindh.’
Faruqi was of the view that Nawaz Sharif and Mumtaz Bhutto were not sincere with the people of Sindh yet these two were shedding “crocodile’s tears” and that they would not be in a position to deceive the people anymore.
She said that the 180 million people of Pakistan are with the present democratic government.
Faruqi further stated that the government ensured equal distribution of resources to the provinces through the National Finance Commission (NFC) Award and that it also brought to an end the anti-Sindh Kalabagh Dam project.
She also flayed those who were criticising President Asif Ali Zardari and Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani without any justification.
Faruqi was of the view that such elements were targeting the present democratic government just to hide their own corruption.
