CM Sindh writes another letter to PM on NFC following no response to the previous one

Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah has written a second letter to the Prime Minister Imran Khan, raising objections over the formulation of 10th National Finance Commission (NFC).

The Prime Minister is yet to give any response from the PM on his earlier letter.

In his earlier letter to Imran Khan highlighting deviation from the Constitution in the recent formation of the National Finance Commission, CM requested the PM to withdraw the notification of the formation of the NFC and issue a fresh notification in accordance with the Constitution.

The letter having subject: “10th National Finance Commission” dated 8th June, 2020 states: “This is with reference to the above mentioned subject and in continuation of my earlier letter dated 14.05. 2020 wherein it was highlighted that the notification dated 12.05.2020 prima facie is in violation of Article 160 of the Constitution.

The second letter contains that: “the contents of my earlier letter are reiterated and re-emphasized.”

The earlier letter highlighted various other Constitutional aberrations due to which you are requested to kindly advise the Hobourable President to withdraw the said notification and issue a fresh notification strictly in accordance with Article 160 of the Constitution.
