HYDERABAD: The Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan’s (MQM-P) Deputy Convener Kunwar Navid Jamil has said his party is going to organize one of the biggest public meetings in Hyderabad on 18th January. 
At a press conference at the party’s office here today, he said hundreds of thousands of people will attend the public meeting to vent their anger on the provincial government of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP). “The PPP’s government is plundering the province’s resources,” he alleged claiming that Rs 94,00 billion had been plundered from across the country and stashed in the foreign countries.  “If this money wasn’t stolen and sent abroad, it could have helped eliminate poverty,” he said. Jamil said the accountability process which had been started in the country should be taken to the next level. “Besides the politicians, the civil and military bureaucrats, businessmen and other people should be brought under the process of accountability,” he suggested. The MQM-P’s leader said Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf’s federal government had promised with his party that they would establish a public sector federal university in Hyderabad where the youth had been deprived of the higher education. Jamil maintained that the people of Hyderabad were suffering from the water supply, drainage and other deficiencies in the urban infrastructure. “When I was Nazim of Hyderabad, I opened a food testing laboratory in the city 11 years ago but it was closed. I established a trauma hospital but its machines and medical equipment were shifted to other hospitals,” Jamil said. He added that his low-cost housing scheme in Kohsar area of Latifabad also met a similar fate. Jamil claimed that MQM-P headed Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (HMC) lacked funds to provide services to the people. Zonal Organizer of MQM-P Zafar Siddiqui, acting Mayor of HMC Suhail Mashhadi and other local leaders of the party were present on the occasion.

ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry Thursday termed responsible former regimes of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) for the loot and plunder and worst economic condition of the country.

In an interview, the minister said the previous governments of PML-N and PPP have to be answerable about collectively record of loan details in ten years as no one knows where the money was spent in the past, but no visible progress and changes were seen in the country.

Adding he said that huge payable amount had created immense trouble for the present government to run the state affairs smoothly.

He recalled that, “Approximately Rs11 trillion were spent by leader of the opposition Shahbaz Sharif alone,”.

Chaudhry lamented that due to the criminal economic policies of the previous governments, every department in the country was in disarray.

“In Naya Pakistan, all corrupt political leaders and personalities will be held accountable for their actions,” he added.

He said the PTI government has no political challenge and its fight against the corrupt system would continue.

Imran Khan’s government has chosen to be accountable to the people as it respects the mandate it was given, he added.

He said that whenever the opposition was asked for accountability it started giving threats of protests to deviate the attention of the government as well as the people.

“But the accountability movement launched by PTI will not stop at the behest of such threats and would continue to rid the country of corrupt elements which has looted and plundered the wealth of our nation,” he added.

The minister said the PTI government would take every step to ensure economic stability in the country and bring about progress and prosperity across the country.

Fawad said that opposition parties were only fighting a political war to recover their looted money, adding, the government was making the all-out efforts to steer the country out of crisis left by the past governments.

To a question about production order, he said it is the right of speaker so he will take any decision in this regard.

He further criticized opposition leader Shahbaz Sharif’s speech that he continued speaking in the Lower House for over three hours continuously, adding , the speech should be in limited to raising public issues instead of personal issues.
