No one can stop me from going abroad: Murad Ali Shah

Sehwan: Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah on Thursday said it does not matter if his name is on the Exit Control List (ECL) and that no power can stop him from embarking on an official trip. Earlier, Prime Minister Imran Khan tweeted stated, “Why are some of our lawmakers so scared of the ECL? Why are they so keen to go abroad? There is so much work to be done by politicians in and for Pakistan, the land they claim to love but some cannot wait to take frequent trips abroad and lawmakers have iqamas or residencies abroad.”  In a talk with newsmen in Sehwan, the chief minister criticised the federal government and Information Minister and said, “He has nothing better to do than making up news stories to appear on television.” “The chicken and egg has become stale and the level of politics and democracy has become such so that the prime minister’s visit to Sindh is termed a conspiracy,” Shah said. “Imran Khan is the prime minister of Pakistan, he can visit Sindh any time.” The chief minister further said that it does not matter to him if his name is on the ECL. “No power can stop me from embarking on an official trip.” Shah added that Bilawal and Asif Ali Zardari have created an alliance with the opposition to help resolve public issues. “The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf is only taking revenge,” he added. Bilawal Zardari responded to the premier’s tweets questioning why some lawmakers are “so scared” of the ECL. Bilawal wrote, “Obviously selected PM doesn’t understand the concept of human rights or freedom of movement.” “Funny it’s only the opposition members on ECL, government members are busy travelling. Including PM who despite promising not to travel for first six months has made more than 6  trips so far!” he held.
