Dr Sikander Mandhro
KARACHI: Sindh Minister for Parliamentary Affairs Dr Sikander Mandhro has stated the provincial assembly has been carrying out all its business, including legislation, as per rules of procedure of the provincial assembly.
For this purpose, he said, the assembly had updated the rules for the first time after 40 years and that was why Sindh was leading all the provincial assemblies in legislation business.
Dr Mandhro dispelled an impression created by Leader of the Opposition Shaharyar Mahar in a media briefing that the Sindh Assembly was carrying out legislation in violation of rules, with reference to the Sindh Public-Private Partnership (Amendment) bill which was taken up for consideration soon after being laid in the house.
He said the government was in talks with the management of the Indus and Aga Khan University Hospitals, besides philanthropists, to improve working of public sector hospitals where despite providing huge funds for medicines and modern equipment, people were often found complaining of non-availability of medicines, unhygienic conditions and equipment out of order.
