KARACHI: Sindh Governor Dr Ishratul Ibad has termed Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP)’s Syed Mustafa Kamal “an incredibly dishonourable man” and said that PSP chief does not behave normally these days.

“In my opinion, he [Kamal] is a very dishonourable, mean, low and bipolar person. He is in severe mental pressure… He remained senator for two years and then left the country under fears of arrest,” the Governor claimed, while speaking to media persons here on Wednesday.

Governor’s views came two days after Mustafa Kamal, called him a ‘criminal’ urging federal government to place the governor on Exit Control List (ECL).

The governor brushed aside all allegations and advised Kamal to ‘consult a psychiatrist’.

Ibad alleged that the PSP chief indulged in massive corruption during his tenure as Karachi mayor. He said that Kamal had ruined the city.

“The term china-cutting initially surfaced in 2008 when Mustafa Kamal was city mayor. There are two aspects of china-cutting in the city ─ one is encroachment, the other is targeted killings and cross-killings.

“Those who claim Karachi saw development only during their era, I want to tell them that their tenure only saw corruption and delay in projects. They ruined the Lyari Express Way and K-4 projects. Just to grant contracts to their own companies, they delayed projects of national importance,” he alleged.

The Governor also urged DG Rangers and Sindh police chief to play their role in bringing all criminals to book, specially to those who are involved in Baldia factory fire incident in which more than 250 people were killed.
