Sindh govt to fully implement SC order for removing encroachment from KCR’s track: CM
HYDERABAD: Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah said the provincial government would implement the Supreme Court’s order for removing encroachment from the Karachi Circular Railway’s track, but the people settled there would not be displaced without alternate accommodation.
“But there is a human angle which we have to take care of,” said Shah while addressing the closing ceremony of the two-day Livestock Expo 2020 and later talking to the media here on Sunday.
“There are clear orders of the court that until we don’t provide alternate accommodation we can’t displace the people from their homes,” the CM added.
He claimed that the provincial government had been implementing the court orders and would continue to do so.
Responding to a question about the posting of a new Inspector General Sindh Police to replace the incumbent IGP Dr Syed Kaleem Imam, he said the Sindh Cabinet’s decision had been conveyed to the prime minister in writing several times.
The CM expressed lack of knowledge about the expenditure incurred on organizing the festival but said the expenses were a public document and were accessible to the people.
He earlier announced that the provincial government would allocate budget for organizing an annual livestock expo in the province from fiscal 2020-21.
“I have discussed it with the livestock minister. We want to make it an annual event which can be arranged in Hyderabad, Sehwan or some other part of Sindh in the months like January and February,” Shah said.
He observed that the festival provided a learning experience to the livestock breeders from across Pakistan who attended the event.
He added that seminars and lectures about the breeds, health issues, productivity and other livestock related matters greatly enhanced knowledge of livestock owners. – APP
