Chinese workers in Larkana guests of Sindh government: Bilawal Bhutto

LARKANA: Chairman Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has vowed that after winning the next general elections, PPP would launch people-friendly schemes and policies like cleaning cities, establishing free hospital system and giving property rights to slum dwellers in Sindh and across the country.

He said that his party would also clear and cleanse dirt and garbage accumulated by the elected government of PTI in Islamabad on February 27 by marching towards the capital city of the country.

Addressing the inaugural ceremony of the Sindh Solid Waste Management Board’s project in Larkana, The PPP chairman said that like every other city in Pakistan, there were problems regarding trash and waste disposal in Larkana too. He said that this problem had risen in the place because the population had increased over the years, and no amendment was made in the system or the number of workers hired ito dispose off the wastages.

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that from the time of the Quaid-e-Awam ( late Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto) until now, the number of sanitary workers remained the same. The mayor and local bodies made continuous efforts in this area, but the input and output of waste was too large to be tackled properly . ‘He said Karachi is also facing similar issues’ “The Sindh Solid Waste Management Board and experts were approached to solve issues related to waste disposal in Karachi. Whenever our people are placed in an institution, there is improvement”’ he added.

The PPP chairman further said that even though Karachi had a large population, the waste management had improved drastically after Barrister Murtaza Wahab had become the administrator of the city. He said that with the help of KMC, the local government and experts, Barrister Wahab efficiently handled the solid waste issues of several localities in Karachi.

“In Larkana, the plan is to come to your homes, take your trash, and dispose of it directly at the dumping site,” said Bilawal Bhutto. “With this, we hope to clean Larkana by improving the waste disposal process.” Chairman PPP also said that this will only be possible if the people cooperate. He said that PPP will launch an awareness campaign in Larkana which will state that everyone will run the city together. “If you cooperate, we will make Larkana clean again,” he added. “Even if the citizens do not cooperate, our appointed individuals will do their best, but our mission is to remain united and work together.”Bilawal Bhutto Zardari also recognised the efforts of the Sindh government in joining hands with the local government.

He said that the pilot project of the initiative has already been launched in union councils in order to understand the core issues of waste disposal. He asked the citizens of Larkana to ensure that the trash is given to the appointed individuals. “Together, we have to take responsibility for our society and the area we live in,” said Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari. “If we don’t take care of our city, who else will?” He said that the project was being initiated with the help of a Chinese state company, and the people of Larkana must take care of their guests.

He also said that the Chinese had offered help due to the deep relations formed between Pakistan and China by the Quaid-e- Awam late Zulfikar Ali Bhutto. He further said that some political elements continue to plot and conspire against PPP, but we must ignore them and solely focus on serving the people. He said that after Larkana, we will proceed towards Islamabad. “After we leave Karachi on the 27th of February, we will clean the trash the reigning government has endowed upon the people,” said Bilwal.

Sindh Local Government Minister Syed Nasir Hussain Shah, Member PPP CEC Jameel Soomro, MNA Khurshid Junejo, MPA Sohail Anwar Siyal, CEO of Chinese company, PPP district Larkana general secretary Ejaz Ahmad Leghari and other lawmakers, leaders and the activists of the party were also present.
