Haleem Adil Sheikh, Vice President of Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf (PTI) and parliamentary party leader in Sindh Assembly has said the Fisheries provides extortion of Rs20million a month to the PPP rulers, and they have given 250 jobs in the Fisheries on political nepotism basis.
According to details, local small fishermen anchored their fishing boats outside the Keamari channel on the call of All Mahigeer Biradri, Pakistan Fishermen Union, to record their protest against rampant corruption in the Sindh fisheries department, here on Tuesday
Haleem Adil Sheikh, MPA Shahnawaz Jadon, PTI leader Haji Muzaffar Shujra, Fishermen Cooperative Society leader Dr Yousuf and other came on boats and launches to join the protest.
Addressing the protestors, Haleem Adil said Bilawal is spiting to the sky. He said in such cases the spit would fall on the face of that person. He said the father of Imran Khan, Inam Khan Niazi, was an educated person and graduate of Imperial College. He was a businessman and he would not sell cinema tickets.
He said 250 jobs in the fisheries are given on a political basis. He said the fisheries generate a Bhatta of Rs20million per month, which is collected by PPP leaders.
He asked the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to start a probe into corruption in the fisheries department. He said Bilawal would soon give the contracts of the fisheries in Larkana and the contract would be given to Maulana. He said the Maulana would use seminary students for the political benefit of Zardari.
He said we have started a protest campaign for the rights of poor fishermen. He said owners of big trawlers can catch fish, but a poor fisherman is not allowed to catch fish.
He said the PTI would support the rights of poor fishermen. He said the PPP is responsible for the plights of poor fishermen. He asked where is MNA Qadir Patel, who would make tall claims. He said why he is not out to support the protest of fishermen.
