Sindhis are raising hue and cry over the Sindh local government law passed by the Sindh Assembly. I failed to understand why they are against it. Everyone is making noises that it will divide Sindh and create bad feeling between the two dominant ethnic groups in Sindh.
What is disturbing no one is giving us any clue why are they against it? Today, I read a lengthy article written by Mr. Sohail Sangi in the Daily ‘Dawn’. He beat about the bust that it will polarize Sindh. He gave could give a flimsy excuse in his article. He said:
They (nationalists) have apprehensions that mayors of the two cities have will be given same powers as enjoyed by a chief minister.
The question is: Does the Bill passed by the Assembly say anything like this?
We all know the influence of nationalists in Sindh and other small parties?
PPP represents Sindh’s people not nationalists. They have entered into agreement with the representatives of Urban leaders. They must have naturally safeguarded the interests of their voters.
Karachi is regarded as the economic hub of the country and generates revenues,which are used by Sindhis living in rural areas and other parts of the Pakistan. So Nationalists should not make fuss if MQM has demanded big share. They deserve.
