Bureau Report

KARACHI: Sindh Minister for Education, Labour and Human Resources Saeed Ghani on Tuesday said that that courts should “think about whether the decisions they take fall within the ambit of the government’s authority”.
Speaking at a press conference in Karachi, Ghani said that the limit of any minister or chief minister’s authority was laid out by the Constitution and the law. Likewise, he said, the courts also had to take decisions in accordance with the same.
“The courts should think whether the decision they are taking is within the limits of the Constitution and the law.
“They should think whether the decision they are taking can be followed,” he said, adding that everybody would have to follow whatever decision the courts took, including himself even if he “did not like it”. The minister added that the provincial government did not regret any decision it took during the pandemic. He said that this was because “Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah and others took decisions based not on their personal wishes but on public health and safety”.
He lashed out at the opposition for being “silly. They (the parties in opposition in Sindh Assembly) are in power in other provinces.
