Sindh rejects provisional census results, centre says process transparent
Sindh rejects provisional census results, centre says process transparent: The Sindh government on Monday announced that it would reject the provisional results of the sixth population census. Terming the results as a conspiracy against the province by the federal government, senior PPP leader Nisar Khuhro said the PPP government will not let the province be treated in an unfair manner.
“We will not let the federal government treat the province unfairly and we will take what is rightfully ours,” said Khuhro.
The provisional government also alleged that Sindh’s population was shown to be less than its actual number in order to not increase the province’s share in the National Finance Commission (NFC) award.
The PPP-led government has also decided to call an all party conference to discuss the reservations.
Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) leader Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui, when asked if his party will attend the conference, said that the issues raised need to be discussed and MQM-P is willing to attend dialogue on the issue.
He added that the MQM-P will attend any dialogue if it concerns Karachi and added that Karachi’s population was also shown to be less than what it was during Zia’s regime.
Questioning the census, he said if the people of the metropolis can not be counted properly, how would the issues of the city be resolved.
The MQM-P leader further alleged that certain localities of Karachi were excluded from the census and said the party had already petitioned the court before the provisional results were released.
