KARACHI: Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah has said that the verdicts of Supreme Court of Pakistan in the cases of PTI and PML-N were comparatively positive but it is Pakistan People’s Party which is always seen differently.
This he said while talking to media just after attending Kiran Sitara, a programme designed to fight against TB organised under the banner of â€˜She Leadsâ€� Conference by Indus Health Network at PAF Museum on Saturday.
Replying to a question about the decision of Supreme Court in the disqualification case of Imran Khan and Jahangir Tarin and Hudaibiya Paper Mills case, the chief minister said that he could not comment on the verdicts but â€œI would like to say that the decisions of the court are comparatively better for both, the PTI and PML-N while there is a different yardstick for the Pakistan People’s Party.â€� We always respect the court decisions, he added.
He said that the forthcoming general election would be the last election for Imran Khan because he is no more leader of youth. â€œOh yes, it is Bilawal Bhutto Zardari who is a genuine leader of youth of the country,â€� he said and added â€œChairman Bilawal Bhutto has the capability to steer the country out of present crisis.â€�
Talking about tragedy of Public School Peshawar, Shah said the smiles and fragrance of the children were still alive in his memories. â€œWe can not forget them, they were our future and their sacrifice is the great one and it has united the nation against terrorists,â€� he said.
Earlier, addressing the â€˜She Leads Conferenceâ€™, the chief minister said that it is something to be pride of to be with 10,000 girl students. â€œI truly feel the positive spirit of optimism at this forum and we will need your youthful energy, creativity and passion to lead our country to a healthier future,â€� he said.
Â Shah said todayâ€™s generation of young people, particularly the female is the largest the world has ever known. He added that one in every three persons alive today is under the age of thirty, and around ninety per cent of young people are living in developing countries, such as Pakistan.Â
He said the collaborative efforts between the Indus Health Network, Interactive Research and Development, Department of Education Government of Sindh, and the Kiran Sitara program, emphasise the importance of contributing to progress, particularly during times of change. â€œThis approach is needed now more than ever,â€� he said.
The chief minister said that the Kiran Sitara Adolescent Health and Leadership program achieves that by mobilizing young girls at secondary schools.Â
By teaching adolescent girls the skills such as communication, negotiation, leadership, human rights and combining that with basic health care directives, the Kiran Sitara is creating a network of social impact leaders.Â
The chief minister said that he is convinced that investing in education for girls and women is the key to unlocking advances across society. He added positive change is possible if we act together and act Read MOre
