.. Manzoor Chadio points out several cases at different Sindhi e-lists/ e-groups, where enemies of Sindh are engaging in activities to stop the Sindh government from taking over the control of those subjects that have returned back to provincial jurisdiction after decades of federal usurpation. It is imperative that Sindhis in Sindh and overseas Sindhis to jointly show support for the provincial take over and criticize those who are still maneuvering to retain control over these subjects. We must stand guard and insist that the PPP governments at the provincial and the federal levels do not waiver from implementing their responsibilities.
Chandio sahib has pointed several specific cases where the daggers have been drawn and the role played by so-called national press in trying to slow down the take-over by the Sindh government. In particular, the three federal hospitals and several educational institutions are at the stake, where enemies of Sindh/ Pakistan are wedging wars on various pretexts.
I urge all to study this critical development and show our collective support for the provincial take over the institutions that we lost because of our apathy few decades ago.
