KARACHI: The Pakistan Peoples Party parliamentary party leader in Sindh Assembly and Senior Education Minister Nisar Ahmad Khuhro has said the PPP will not back any call for mid-term elections in the country because it wants to see that the present government completes its term.
Mr Khuhro, responding to questions of a group of media persons in his chamber in the Sindh Assembly on Tuesday, added that there was no harm in going for mid-term elections as such elections were held in every country, but in Pakistan, where democracy was in its nascent stage, any ‘unconstitutional’ step would further weaken the democratic dispensation in the country.
Replying to another question, he said that the Indus River System Authority was a constitutional authority pertaining to the implementation of the 1991 water accord and taking its powers of distribution of water and giving to Wapda would be a sheer injustice because Wapda was a ‘white elephant’.
He said the main reason for water a shortage in Sindh was stealing of water and occasional opening of the Chashma-Jhelum link canal, which resulted in scarcity of water.
