KARACHI: MQM Pakistan Head Dr Farooq Sattar accused Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) of looting average Sindhis for the past nine years.
Addressing a press conference at the Karachi Press Club, Sattar leveled serious allegations against the provincial government, stating that Sindhis from urban areas have been a target of prejudice.
“The average Sindhi youth has been looted,” he said. “While those belonging to the urban areas have been a victim of prejudice,” he added.
The MQM-P chief further went on to say that PPP government had taken advantage and exploited the Sindhis who used to reside in the province’s urban areas. He said that funds had been distributed unjustly in Sindh’s cities and districts.
“Karachi provides the provincial government with 85 percent and the center with 65 percent of taxes,” he said. “However, Karachi was not given a single penny out of the Rs 70 billion tax revenue,” he added.
He said that the entire burden of taxes was on Karachi, Hyderabad, Sukkur and Nawabshah. He blamed all problems of Sindh squarely on the feudal elite.
