KARACHI: Leader of the Parliamentary Party in Sindh Assembly Haleem Adil Sheikh has said that the people of the province are facing the worst human rights violations.
Haleem Sheikh said the government of Sindh had formed a commission to safeguard the rights of its own party (PPP) in 2011 with an annual budget of millions of rupees.
According to details, Haleem Adil along with the team of his lawyers led by Advocate Shahid Soomro appeared before the Sindh Human Rights Commission, said a press release.
The Commission had taken a Suo Moto notice of an accusation of violation of human rights allegedly by Haleem Adil during the elections of 2019, for Ghotki and served him notice.
The PTI leader said the Sindh government was involved in irregularities and rigging in the Ghotki election last year. People belonging to the PPP are part of the Commission and its aim is to suppress the political opponents, he added.
Adil said people from Ratodero to Hyderabad suffered from AIDS but the Commission remained silent and more than 124000 people were bitten by dogs but the Commission was silent.
He said, “Children are working in factories for Rs. 2000 per month, but no one takes action”. When employees protest, they are being beaten by police but the Commission does not take any action, he added.
The PTI leader said, “Sindh government is using all its departments and institutions to suppress its political opponents”. He said, “Whenever Bilawal Bhutto starts a campaign for the rights of Sindh, we will support him”.
Adil said that the Sindh government officials tried to befool the masses through false claims, corrupt leaders would never identify the wrongdoers.
Sindh government should identify the posts which were sold on bribe to steal the right of deserving candidates of the poor segment, as this is impossible to believe that only rich youth could serve the nation in better ways,” he suggested.
