KARACHI: Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah has said that after the repeal of the federal accountability law, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) cannot take any action in Sindh. “We have enforced our anti-corruption law and now the provincial government will have to eliminate corruption from the province on its own.”
He said that NAB has no jurisdiction to investigate provincial cases now. “Our stance is very clear that anti-corruption is a provincial subject,” he said. He added that the provincial government would strengthen its law to fight corruption.
After the church visit, Shah visited Swami Narayan Mandir at Light House and participated in their rituals. He also visited Guru Nanak Darbar located near the temple and participated in their religious rituals.
Shah, on behalf of his party leadership, assured them of his full support and cooperation. “Why do you feel you are a minority? You are our majority, your presence has made this country colourful and beautiful and the PPP will never allow this beauty to fade away,” he said. The CM added that the party has made two members of the Hindu community ministers in the provincial cabinet and had supported another Hindu member in the general election. “We are with you and we will be with you because you have deep roots in this province and the country. This is your country,” he said.
Talking about the recent killings of policemen in the city, the CM said that he was taking strict measures to put an end to such killings. “We are working on it and exploring which [terrorist] group has emerged to challenge the police force,” he said and vowed to crush them.
