Only privileged class irked by good governance advice: Haleem Adil Sheikh


Karachi: Pakistan Muslim League – Quaid e Azam (PML-Q) Sindh chapter president Haleem Adil Sheikh has said only the privileged class is irked by the advice of the good governance.

In a statement here Wednesday, he said that the ally of ruling PML-N, Pakhtunkhwa Milli Awami Party chief Mahmood Achakzai, should stop harming the operation Zarb e Azb just to get vested interests and political mileage.

He said when the nation faces earthquake or flood it is the army that always plays a pivotal role. He said from coping with the natural calamities to rescue work in factory building collapses the army discharges very important and crucial roles. He said Zarb e Azb is the responsibility of army while the rehabilitation of the internal displaced people (IDPs) was the job of the civil government but still the army is discharging this duty.

He said; however, when the government is advised to improve its governance the courtiers of the government do not like it. He said that expression of reservations by Mahmood Achakzai and terming the advice as anti-constitution is tantamount to repay the favours of PML-N. He said not only journalists suggest good governance during their TV talk shows but even every child of Pakistan demands the good governance. He reminded that Mahmood Achakzai not only managed that his brother becomes governor but also sent more than five relatives in assemblies.

He said the statement of the ISPR regarding the advice of good governance could only be disliked by the privileged class, whose vested personal interests have now been becoming a threat for the national security. He said after making the brother of Achakzai as governor of Balochistan now efforts are under way to bring the chief minister of that province from PML-N. He said the statement of Achakzai shows that he is issuing such statements to secure his vested interests and get even more privileges. He said the Pak army is laying great sacrifices for defending the national borders and also taking full care of the distressed people during natural disasters.
