Corruption, not resource constraint behind poverty in Sindh: PM

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan Saturday said that it was not the dearth of resources but the corruption which dragged the people of Sindh into extreme poverty.

In a meeting with the parliamentarians and senior leadership of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Sindh chapter and coalition parties at the residence of MPA Ali Gohar Mahar during his visit to Ghotki, the prime minister said in the past, the national institutions were marred just for personal gains and public money was transferred to personal accounts, said a PM Office statement.

During the meeting, the prime minister discussed the overall situation of Sindh province, coalition matters and steps taken by the federal government for welfare of people in Sindh.

He told the meeting that it was a joint decision of the PTI and coalition partners to expose the corruption and they have to accomplish this agenda. He also urged the coalition parties to help fulfill the PTI’s manifesto collectively.

The prime minister advised the parliamentarians to play their role in identification and resolution of the public issues.

He assured of federal government’s all out support to resolve the problems being faced by the people of Sindh.
