ISLAMABAD, July 26: The civil society organisations from Sindh on Saturday called upon the federal government to withdraw its decision of taking control of the Sindh Coal Authority, terming it a breach of provincial autonomy.
By Khalid Hashmani
WE condemn the illegal action of the current government to transfer the control of coal resources from the Sindh government to the federal government. This action is undemocratic, anti-people and violation of the principle of provincial autonomy. I demand that the government immediately cancel the announcement and announce a new provincial coal authority with majority representation of Sindhis including a representative from the local area and only one representative from the federal government.
I am drafting an online petition to press on the demand for a new Coal Authority that will be circulated soon. I hope that every Sindhi and other patriotic Pakistani will sign it.
