Karachi. 1.1.2016: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Karachi Division President Syed Najmi Alam, General Secretary Nadeem Bhutto, Habibuddin Junaidi, Lateef Mughal and Manzoor Abbas have expressed serious concern on a news that was telecast by a local private TV. The private TV had claimed the federal government has prepared a list of national strategic institutions for privatisation, which include Railways, PNSC, LESCO, FESCO, MEPCO, HESCO, SNGC, SSGC, NBP, State Life, Utility Stores Corporation, Port Qasim and many others.
In a statement issued from the PPP Media Cell Sindh, they said that it is now unavoidable for the federal government either to own that news or refute it and in any case, the federal government has to take the Parliament into confidence.
They said the names of institutions in the list are those that are directly or indirectly linked to national integrity and sovereign of the state and any measure taken for selling these institutions would be tantamount to naked aggression against the country.
They said that federal government might have the right to think about se4lling these national institutions but it does not have any right to even take just one step forward and in case the federal government would dare to take any step, it would remain prepared to pay for it because the people of the country and the patriotic parties of the country would then teach the federal government a lesson of patriotism.
Meanwhile, they lauded the role of Senator Saeed Ghani for presenting a resolution in opposition to the Presidential Ordinance in the Senate on PIA’s privatisation. They also lauded the role of the Chairman of the Senate Mian Raza Rabbani and each Senator for their positive role.
They also expressed hope that the MNAs would also follow the footprints of the Senators in the national assembly and would also play their role as per the aspirations of the people.
