THAR – Ten deaths of infant hunger sickened children in the desert of Sindh faded the echoes of Roti Kapra Makan – the party slogan of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP).
The dance of death on hunger sickened infant children in Sindh’s desert continued and now total number of casualties in last twelve hours mounted to 10 on Monday.
The longstanding famine and malnutrition among children is now widely believed to be the mismanagement of PPP’s government in Sindh.
Not to forget that only after three days when Bilawal Bhutto Zardari called off the show-cause notices issued to Chief Minister of Sindh and minister Manzoor Wasan, another innocent infant child withered due to famine in Mithi Hospital.
These deaths mounted the total casualties to 83 within 60 days. However, the irony is that only three days ago the Chairman of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Bilawal Butto Zardari had called off the notices to CM Sindh Syed Qaim Ali Shah and minister Manzoor Wasan. The reason to call off the notices was mentioned as ‘enough steps were taken to control the famine situation in Thar’. But 65 deaths only in last 42 days are telling altogether a different story.
The minister Manzoor Wasan commented on the deaths in Mithi had stated earlier “Everyday 600 children died in Pakistan. The deaths in Mithi are not due to famine but due to normal mortality rate.”
