Foreign loans death trap for economy: Altaf Shakoor

Foreign loans death trap for economy: Altaf Shakoor

Foreign loans death trap for economy: Altaf Shakoor

Karachi, July 11: Pasban Democratic Party (PDP) chairman Altaf Shakoor has said that the rulers are happy on receiving the first installment of the IMF loan, but in fact this loan is a death trap for the national economy. 

In a statement here Thursday, he said previously the PPP and PML-N governments had taken heavy loans from the IMF and now the PTI’s ‘change regime’ has also taken heavy loan from the IMF and completed hat trick of IMF loans. He said getting loans from the IMF is a spectacular failure of the PTI, and signature on the black warrant of the national economy. He said the sitting government has taken IMF loans with harsh counditionalities without getting them discussed in parliament, which is just deplorable.

Altaf Shakoor said now as the result of the cruel counditionalities of this loan, poor Pakistani people would be further burdened with poverty, hunger, price hike, joblessness and deprivation. He said the government has already raised tariffs of gas and electricity besides increasing prices of petroleum products, which have resulted in a sharp price hike. He said now basic kitchen commodities are getting out of reach for millions of poor families, raising poverty and hunger in Pakistan to new alarming levels.

He said the PTI government had done no homework on economy and they just fooled the people of Pakistan with catchy slogans and false promises. He said instead of generating revenue from local available resources the rulers opted for the IMF loans having very harsh anti-people  counditionalities and this act of the selfish rulers have shattered the dreams of Pakistanis for getting self-sufficiency and upholding sovereignty. He said the claim of rulers that no new tax was slapped in budget is pack of lies. He said the real fact is that the budget-making was actually done by the stooges of international lending agencies including the IMF, who were handpicked by the PTI government on dictation of loan givers.

Altaf Shakoor said the people of Pakistan have once again to struggle for getting rid of the foreign agents and slaves who are deciding the fate of this nation. He said we have also to get rid of corrupt electables including the looters of urban areas and Waderas of rural areas. He said unless the true and real representatives of Pakistani people are sent to parliament, the basic issues of the poor Pakistanis could not be resolved.

Change in provincial government is shattered dream of PTI: CM Sindh Murad Ali Shah

Change in provincial government is shattered dream of PTI: CM Sindh Murad Ali Shah

Change in provincial government is shattered dream of PTI: CM Sindh Murad Ali Shah

Karachi, July 03, 2019: Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah has said that change in the provincial government of Sindh was a shattered dream of the PTI leadership. “Now, they are trying to resort to magical tricks but these [magical] tricks won’t work in Sindh.”

This he said on Wednesday while talking to media at two different places, Al-Jamea-tus-Safiyah Al-Mahlat al-Burhaniya which he visited in the morning and then at under-construction Shaheed-e-Millat, Tariq Road Inter-section, underpass. He was accompanied by Local Government Minister Saeed Ghani and his Advisor on Information Murtaza Wahab.

The chief minister replying a to a question said that it was a dream of PTI leadership to bring a change in the provincial government but “this dream would never come true because they don’t have numerical strength in the provincial assembly,” he said and added “oh yes, they always play talk about magical tricks under which they believe they have acquired power in the Center,” he said in lighter but critical mood and went on saying “these tricks won’t work in Sindh.”

He said that the federal government was hatching conspiracies against Sindh government. “If you weaken the provinces means you are weakening the federation,” he reminded the federal government.

To another question, Mr Shah said that the person who had no experience of government and its system has been made prime minister. “Now, under the influence of power he [prime minister] has started conducting experiments on the people of Pakistan,” he said and added under his first experiment he deprived poor people of square meals by unleashing Tsunami of price hike in the country.

Mr Shah said that the prime minister was considering everyone as thief and dacoit but he was forgetting that he himself was facing NAB cases. “You cannot rule by suppressing the people and throttling their voice but you have to deal with every one like a good human being and ruler,” he said and added throw threats and suppression you could not silence the people from raising voice for their rights.

To a question, the chief minister said that he was personally against the amnesty schemes because under the scheme the government was going to legalize the ill-gotten wealth people have amassed. “Politicians were not entitled to take benefit from the scheme,” he said. Mr Shah said that when their amnesty scheme has failed they have started conducting raids on houses of the people. “Where we are leading this nation by creating a wave of fear, unrest and insecurity,” he questioned and added in such state of affairs people would fly their capital and business to other countries.

Rana Sanaullah: Replying to a question about the arrest of Rana Sanaullah, Mr Shah condemned it and said this kind of political victimization would further undermine the credibility of the government. “You [PM] are behaving like a dictator and damaging political people – this is not good move and would end up in serious situation,” he said. Mr Shah said that the arrest of Rana Sanaullah would prove to be a charge0-sheet against prime minister.

Karachi: To a question about installation of banners against Sindh government by a political party, the chief minister said that they were making failed attempts to hijack people of Karachi once again. “They have never raised voice for the rights of people of this city but they have always ditched their voters,” he said and added that his government was carrying out development works in the city and serving people without any discrimination. “We know we don’t have any MPA at Shaheed-e-Millat area, Tariq Road, University Road, Shahrah-e-Faisal and various others areas of the city even then we reconstructed road network, laid afresh drainage lines, trying to resolve others issues sincerely,” he said.

These people [who have installed banners against his government] have always played politics of destruction, hatred, divide and destabilization in this city and this was an open secret. “People of Karachi know their friends and foes very well and they would never come into their crocodile tears,” he said and vowed he would resolve all the issues of this city such as water, sanitation, cleanliness and improve investment environment.

Mr Shah said that he visited District Central which was full of filth and garbage. Who is Chairman of the DMC Central, he asked and said it was MQM. “We have provided them funds and they have their own resources and sufficient sanitation staff then why they were not pressing their chairman to clean their districts,” he asked and said “this is politics and they are playing on the pointation of some others.”

KMC: Talking about the performance of the KMC, the chief minister said that it has failed to achieve all its revenue recovery targets from last many years. Instead of taping new revenue sources and enhancing and achieving recovery targets, he [Mayor] was seen always blaming Sindh government for his failures.

The KMC has completely failed to undertake any tangible exercise to control its non-development expenditures, rationalize over-crowded staff, undertake proper use of its funds and resources but just they have set their eyes on provincial government resources which was wrong, he said.

Mr Shah said that the federal government had faced shortfall in its revenue recoveries, therefore they have transferred less funds to the province. “We are facing financial crunch even then we have given sufficient funds to the KMC so that it can serve people of this city but they [KMC] lack sincerity and will to serve the people of this city.

He said that the court has asked the Sindh government to work out a methodology to clear Rs580 million electricity bills of KMC upto March. The provincial government against a Rs580 million electricity bills has already paid over Rs320 million and the remaining amount would also be paid. “But, how long the provincial government would be paying power bills of the KMC, he asked and questioned why the KMC was not creating its own resources.

He said that the prime minister had announced Rs65 billion package for Karachi and a few leaders of PTI and MQM claimed to have brought Rs45 billion but when the budget was announced it turned to be only Rs12 billion. “Why are you not strengthening our hands in getting our due share from the federal government,” he asked the MQM leadership. Why MQM elected representatives did not talk about K-IV in which federal government has stopped funding, he said.

Mr Shah said that presently 400 to 450 MGD water was being supplied to city against the required of around 1200 MGD. The solution of this water shortage lies in completion of K-IV project, he said. Murad Shah said that the federal government was not ready to talk to Sindh government on K-IV and other projects- this kind of attitude was detrimental for national reconstruction.

Plea Bargain: To a question, the chief minister said that he had no knowledge of Khursheed Jamali [of private power plant consultant] request to NAB for plea bargain. “I have nothing to do with the power plant – just I was a provincial minister and had not executed installation or procurement of the power plant,” he said and added “some `political actors’ were spreading baseless propaganda against him,” he said and added “I am not scared of such propaganda because it has no foundation or base,” he said.

PTI against CM in ECP: To a question, the chief minister said that he had heard that the PTI has filed an application against him in the Election Commission of Pakistan for violating code of conduct of election in Ghotki. “I went to the house of Jam Saifullah Dharejo in Karachi where he announced to join PPP,” he said and added “we did not go to his home in Ghotki- how it can be termed as violation of code of conduct,” he asked and said he would file his reply when and if ECP issued him a letter.

He said when schedule of the election was announced the prime minister went to Ghotki to offer condolence for the death of Federal Minister Ali Mohammad Khan Maher. “This was violation of code of conduct,” he said.

Underpasses: Earlier, the chief minister visited under construction Shaheed-e-Millat, Tariq Road Inter-section, underpass and inspected pace and quality of the work. The chief minister was given detailed briefing on the work on the project. The project has been launched for Rs437 million and around 75 percent its work has been completed. The chief minister directed PD Niaz Soomro to complete the project by August 2019.

He also visited under-construction underpass at Hyder Ali Intersection launched for Rs478 million. The chief minister was given detailed briefing by the project Director Niaz Soomro. The project has achieved 60 percent physical progress and would be completed by the start of November 2019.

Karachi Chamber urges FBR to adjust refunds of previous amnesty’s refunds

Karachi Chamber urges FBR to adjust refunds of previous amnesty’s refunds

Karachi Chamber urges FBR to adjust refunds of previous amnesty’s refunds

KARACHI: President Karachi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI) Junaid Esmail Makda, while referring to his conversation with Minster of State for Revenue Hammad Azhar and Member IR – FBR Dr. Hamid Ateeq Sarwar during meetings in Islamabad, stated that after listening to the grievances being faced by those individuals whose asset declaration cases were stuck up due to some IT glitches on last day of Amnesty Scheme 2018, the State Minister and Member IR suggested that five percent tax paid against the assets declared by such individuals can be refunded so that they could re-declare their assets in this year’s Asset Declaration Scheme.

In a statement issued on Tuesday, President KCCI pointed out that KCCI received numerous complaints about unprocessed cases of last year’s amnesty scheme in which although the individuals submitted their taxes well in time within the last date of the amnesty scheme but their cases were not processed in FBR’s portal and to date, the fate of all such cases has not be decided.

“KCCI has written numerous letters from time to time so that the issue could be resolved and the policymakers have been assuring to look into this issue but no relief has been provided so far”, he added.

He said that as the government was making all out efforts to make this year’s Asset Declaration Scheme successful, they must look into the possibility of providing relief to such individuals whose cases were not processed in last year’s Amnesty Scheme due to congestion in FBR’s portal or any other IT-related glitch.

Junaid Makda suggested that FBR should come up with a relevant notification in this regard in which they must announce refunds to such cases so that these individuals could quickly avail this year’s amnesty scheme.

He was fairly optimistic that keeping in view the government’s seriousness towards the Ease of Doing Business, the FBR would look into this matter and accordingly announce relief for such individuals as per commitment which would encourage many others to come forward to participate in this year’s Asset Declaration Scheme.

He was of the opinion that although the last date for Asset Declaration Scheme has been extended for three more days but it was not suffice and the government must extend it for at least 30 more days so that maximum number of people could avail this scheme which would prove beneficial for the national exchequer. “The business community remained heavily engaged in identifying budget anomalies, leaving a very little time to examine and look into the possibility of benefitting from Asset Declaration Scheme whose deadline has to be extended”, he added. Follow on Twitter | Facebook and visit website myvoicetv .

Traitors do not deserve leniency: Chairman PDP Altaf Shakoor

Traitors do not deserve leniency: Chairman PDP Altaf Shakoor

Traitors do not deserve leniency: Chairman PDP Altaf Shakoor

Karachi, July 3: Pasban Democratic Party (PDP) Chairman Altaf Shakoor has expressed grave concern over the rumors that rulers were striking a hidden deal to release the traitor, Dr Shakil Afridi.

In a statement here Wednesday, he said treason is a serious crime and even recently some senior army officers were given punishments for treason. He said no traitor deserves leniency or special treatment. He regretted that there are wide rumors that the traitor Shakil Afridi would be released under a hidden deal and its responsibility would be put on judicial system. He said such conspiracies would only bring a bad name to our nation and country and our institutions.  He said we should stop to make Pakistan a laughing stock in international community. He said every criminal should be punished as per the law and constitution and no preferential treatment should be offered to anyone to please influential local or foreign quarters. 

Altaf Shakoor said Pakistan needs firm uphold of law and constitution. There should be no two standards for the mighty and the meek. Every person should be made equal before law. He said all hidden conspiracies against this country should be stopped and its image should not be further deteriorated at international level. He said if the rulers go for hidden deals at the cost of supremacy of law and constitution it would result in lack of confidence of people in democracy and democratic system. He said our parliamentarians should assert themselves for safeguarding the constitutional norms and rights and liberties of masses. 

Pasban Democratic Party Chairman said we are confident and hopeful that our independent courts would dole out justice, but the people of Pakistan do not have confidence on the turncoat ruling elite due to their frequent betrayals and u-turns. He said the rulers should give top priority to the national honor and the expectations and aspirations of the Pakistani masses. They should keep the national interest supreme to all other considerations.  He said foreign spies, terrorists and national traitors do not deserve any mercy and they should not be given concessions and preferential treatment. He said if we continue to show double standards over this matter, it would further intensify the hopelessness and disappointment amongst the Pakistan masses. 

Altaf Shakoor said the Paban Democratic Party is working to make Pakistan a law-abiding society where only constitution and law would have supremacy and where constitutional rights of all Pakistanis, irrespective of their social or economic status, are safeguarded. He said this would be possible when the shameful politics of so-called electables is ended for good and true representatives of people are sent to parliament.

He said that if the journalists come together in such a way most of their problems would be solved.

Hailing the decision to bar PTI leaders from entering all the Press Clubs of Pakistan for three days, he felicitated President KPC Imtiaz, Secretary General KPC Arman Sabir, President Lahore Press Club Arshad Ansari, President Islamabad Press Club Shakil Qarar and Secretary General PFUJ Rana Mohammad Azeem along with all the UJs in Pakistan for the resolve.

GM Jamali warned that if the ruling party failed to shun this kind of approach against journalists’ fraternity, stern action would be taken against it. He stated that journalists’ fraternity had always played its due role to strengthen the democratic institutions and would continue to do so.

President PFUJ GM Jamali stated that the International Federation of Journalists had also been informed about the attack and torture by PTI leader on KPC President Imtiaz Faran and it is expected that, like all over Pakistan, globally voice would also be raised.

FIA Cybercrime Crackdown in Karachi & Gujranwala-More Arrest on Illegal Mobile Registration

FIA Cybercrime Crackdown in Karachi & Gujranwala-More Arrest on Illegal Mobile Registration

Karachi: FIA Cybercrime circle continues its crackdown arresting the mafia groups in Karachi & Gujranwala involved in illegal activities of steeling passport Identities for mobile registration. Earlier a group was also arrested from Rawalpindi. The arrested gangs shown on electronic media were involved in steeling the passport information of overseas Pakistani and used to register smuggled and blocked phones against them. One of the Gang included a travel agency of Karachi, who used the passport data of their passengers and the data was sold to the mobile shopkeepers. It is learnt that PTA has also provided a further list of 1326 people, whom passport data has been used in this immoral and illegal activity. FIA has warned travel agents, shopkeepers and consumers against use of such data for registration of illegal or blocked phones.   They have warned of serious consequences that includes 07 year imprisonment and fine or both as per PECA rules.  All such illegally registered phones could be traced back by FIA.

It is also reported that PTA and FIA are also taking other prevention measures against the illegal IMEI registration. These steps are being taken against the miscreants that involved in stealing the passport information in a systematic way, and activating the smuggled phones by using the stolen passport data or cloning the mobile phones. PTA and FIA has received complaints that when they try to register their phone via PTA’s legitimate process, they get the message that your passport has already been used and a request to pay the tax.

FIA Cybercrime circle has last week arrested smuggling groups involved in illegal activities of mobile registration from Karachi and Gujranwala. In Karachi, the group included a travel agent and shopkeepers where the travel agent was found steeling passport information of overseas Pakistani and this was sold to mobile shopkeepers who used the data for registering the phones against them. It is reported that PTA has also provided a list of 1326 people, whose passport data has been used in this immoral activity.

In Gujranwala, a smugglers group has also been arrested. The group, consisted of five people that has stolen passport information and used the data to register the smuggled smartphones. Almost 5000 passports information of umrah performers was being illegally. Media reports disclosed that travel agent and shopkeepers were both involved in this criminal activity.

The step taken FIA Cybercrime circle is appreciable by the mobile importers association who says that such black sheep needs to be identified and brought to task to protect consumers and interest of the legal importers. The illegal imports the association said should be discouraged by all as it is making a major dent in the country import revenues and protect consumer rights.

The Senate Committee IT in its meeting last week has also stressed upon FBR and FIA to check the gangs involved in passport identity theft for registration and asked to take further steps in improving the process for providing convenience to the consumers. Law enforcement experts are of the opinion that illegal phones that used to come without any registration system are a major source of criminal activities and such crackdown are very essential. Any leniency shown to such gangs could no doubt be harmful for the national interest of the country.

AKUH, Aman Foundation and Johns Hopkins University release findings of Project HEAT

Karachi April 17, 2019,: In partnership with Aman Health Care Services (AHCS), Aga Khan University Karachi and John Hopkins University, Baltimore USA, Aman Foundation celebrated the successful conclusion of the HEAT study – a collaborative research project to evaluate ways in which deaths caused by extreme heat exposure could be reduced.

HEAT (Heat Emergency Awareness and Treatment) commenced 4 years ago, in the wake of the scorching heatwave in Karachi which triggered a healthcare emergency and caused the deaths of more than 1,200 people. Its completion comes at a time when it has been forecasted to be an even hotter year than 2015. 

The project comprised of researchers from Aga Khan University, Johns Hopkins University, the World Health Organization and the Aman Foundation. Their goal was to develop and implement strategies for preventing and treating heat emergencies in households and in emergency departments in low-income settings; various key findings were drawn into the presented policy brief. 

Mujahid Khan, CEO Aman Foundation addressed the audience by stating: 

“Keeping in mind the current climate situation of the world, it is extremely important to become as aware of the severity of the situation as possible, in order to be able to find relevant situations for our region. This is an important step in collaboration with AKU and Johns Hopkins, and we are hopeful that this would prove to be beneficial for the community”.

The keynote speeches included proposed policy recommendations such as introducing and emphasising training for managing heat emergencies, notifying hospitals well in advance to ensure availability of necessary supplies, and overall public awareness creation via various channels of communication.
