SHC issues notices on petition of Thatta lawmakers seeking uplift funds


KARACHI, The Sindh High Court (SHC) on Tuesday issued a notice to chief secretary Sindh, additional chief secretary Planning & Development, principal secretary to Chief Minister Sindh, and other officials on a petition of lawmakers belonging to Thatta seeking funds for development schemes.

A division bench headed by Justice Irfan Saddat Khan also issued notice to chief provincial law officer to reply to the petition. The petition was filed by MNA Syed Ayaz Ali Shah Shirazi (NA-238), MPA Syed Aijaz Ali Shah Shirazi (PS-84), MPA Syed Ameer Hyder Shah Shirazi (PS-85), MPA Syed Shah Hussain Shah Shirazi (PS-86).

They submitted in petition that Chief Minister Sindh had allocated an amount of Rs40 million for the financial year 2013-14 for development schemes to be executed through the lawmakers in the province.

The petitioner said that provincial authorities had sent them a letter on November 18, 2013, asking them to submit their proposals with regard to development schemes for their respective constituencies. “We furnished our proposals but the same were not considered on ground of political rivalry.”

They said that ruling party had adopted a biased attitude towards them and their supporters, adding that several false and fabricated cases were registered against them and their supporters in order to victimize them.

They requested the court to direct authorities to submit before court the record of approved development schemes for lawmakers and process the proposals submitted by them regarding developmental schemes to be executed in Thatta.
