Larkana: A hub of PPP’s bad governance?

Reacting to the video, PTI leader Haleem Adil Sheikh termed it bad governance of PPP. He uploaded a video on Twitter where he expressed his disappointment.

According to Haleem Adil Sheikh, every good thing began in Larkana during Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto and Benazir Bhutto’s era. However, Larkana has now become a hub of all societal problems, for example, diseases, corruption, etc.

He recounted that AIDs and the issue of dogs biting children all began in Larkana.

“And now this,” he said, referring to the video of the PPP leader handing out jobs through a lucky draw.

“Nothing is more corrupt and unfair than this. Even a poor person cannot get a job based on merit,” Haleem Adil Sheikh said.

Moreover, he also highlighted how Deputy Commissioners are “slaves” of PPP. In the end, Haleem Adil Sheikh said that he will raise this issue in the assembly. Furthermore, he urged the Sindh High Court to take notice of this new form of “corruption.”

This is not the first time the Sindh government was accused of corrupt practices in the education sector. Earlier,  Transparency International Pakistan (TIP) approached Sindh Chief Minister (CM), Murad Ali Shah, with the complaint that the provincial education department is allegedly purchasing desks for public schools at a 320% higher rate.

Desks which originally cost around Rs. 7000, were being bought at rates between Rs. 23, 985 to Rs. 29,500 per desk.
