AS reported in the press, the federal government, with the approval of the Planning Commission, has once again established the ‘Thar Coal-mining Company’. This has been done without the consent of the Sindh government.
Earlier when the federal cabinet decided to set up the ‘Thar Coal Authority’ by abolishing the Sindh Coal Authority (SCA), a statutory body, established through a notification, agitation started all over the province. The federal authorities thereafter had to relent by rescinding the orders.
