PPP has revived the Local Government Ordinance 1979. They have been saying this law is not acceptable to them because it has been passed by a military dictator. The Nation commented on the news this way.
Repeating its history of U-turns, the ruling PPP got repealed the recently passed Sindh Peoples Local Government Act 2012 and revived the Local Government Ordinance 1979 amid protests by the MQM lawmakers in Sindh Assembly on Thursday.
PPP’s action tells us that they should never be trusted. The new Local Government Bill was approved after a long deliberation. The so called democrats has scrapted the law for few votes.
PPP’s action will only increase the friction between rural and Urban people. The Urban people earns money for the province. If they suffer people of rural will also suffer because Sindhi chief ministers will not find money to develop their areas. Karachi is already passing through an economic crisis because of mismanagement and corruption of PPP leaders.
