KARACHI: Sindh Governor Imran Ismail has said that the government will fully honour the agreement with Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam chief Maulana Fazl-ur-Rahman and will not create any hurdle in their way.

However, he warned that if the sit-in took any extra-constitutional step or made attempt to create chaos and instability then the government would certainly take action in accordance with the law and Constitution.

He was talking to the media at a function held in connection with Governor Sindh Cup at the Karachi Racecourse on Sunday.

Pakistan Muslim League-Functional leader Pir Sadruddin Shah Rashdi aka Yunus Sain, Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf’s Mahmood Maulvi and others were also present. Awarding the trophy to the winner of the race, Governor Ismail highlighted the need of promoting sports activities at the government level.

Meanwhile, the governor said that all-out efforts were being made to solve problems of the people on a priority basis without any discrimination and to ensure that the impact of the measures being taken in this regard should trickle down to the common man.

The governor expressed these views in response to the issues raised by PTI lawmaker Najeeb Haroon about the problems of the metropolis. The governor said that the doors of the Governor House were open for all the people to visit and lodge their complaints, if any, so that necessary steps could be taken to mitigate their difficulties.

The governor met PTI’s chief organizer Saifullah Khan Niazi at the residence of Mr Haroon, who is also the chairman of the National Assembly’s standing committee on housing and construction.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr Niazi said that the PTI was one of the largest political parties whose reorganisation would be completed soon. He said all constitutional requirements were fully met and the principle of merit was observed in the reorganisation process.

He also asked elected representatives to remain in touch with the people and play their role in mitigating their issues. He also said that Prime Minister Imran Khan was committed to solve problems of the people and the vision of the federal government was to meet basic requirements of the people in the field of education and health care.

Earlier, Mr Niazi exchanged views on the political situation with party representatives.

Meanwhile, speaking at a press conference at Insaf House PTI leader Haleem Adil Shaikh held the Sindh chief minister responsible for the corruption in the province.
