By Ghulam Mahdi Lund,

Larkana: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Sindh president Ameer Bux Bhutto has hinted “ruthless” accountability of elements involved in massive corruption in the past. Speaking at a press conference at Dahesar house here on Saturday, he said corruption elements from Sindh were crying foul because noose around them was being tightened. “They are dubbing the accountability as threat to democracy only to save their skin”, Ameer Bux Bhutto speaks in his press conference. Mr bhutto said that dispensation of justice had nothing to do with democracy and democratic policies. He rejected Pakistan Peoples Party’s allegation of political victimisation in the name of accountability, and said the Zardaris-led PPP itself had been involved political victimisation during its tenure. In this context, he pointed out that four murder cases had been registered against him during the period and [former Sindh CM] Liaquat Ali Jatoi’s land encroached upon. He said proofs of such victimisation cases would be produced when time would come. The PTI leader said that the revelation by Dr. Asim Hussain, Uzair Baloch and others would definitely see the light of the day, he said. Regarding the current economic crisis in the country, he drew its resemblance with Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto’s 1971 time but termed it “political critics”. He said the PTI government was actively engaged in talks with IMF while our friendly countries, including Saudi Arabia, China and Malaysia had help a lot to address the serious issue relating to the national economy. “PTI is a revolutionary political party that is sincerely working to bring about a change”, he said. Ameer Bhutto said that corruption and ruined the country as it had devastated major national institutions over the past 20 years. The masses were neglected and deceived in Bhutto’s name while those ruling over the country kept amassing wealth, he said. Responding to a question, Mr Bhutto said that all political leaders including the Sindh chief minister had supported constructions of Bhasha to address the serious issue of water. “We will not compromise on other dams,” he added. He said he had requested Prime Minister to monthly visiting Sindh’s different districts, addressing and meeting people. In replied to the alleged corruption in Larkana’s of Rs92 billion development fund, he said an inquiry should be held into the matter by the FIA. “I will speak to the Prime Minister about it,” he said.
