KARACHI -  PPPP President Asif Ali Zardari held a meeting with Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah here at the CM House on Monday and discussed with him development schemes underway all over the province.

Zardari urged him to not only complete the schemes in time, but also ensure their quality. “Timely completion gives more benefit to people of the area,” he said.

They also discussed the arrangements made in connection with the death anniversary of Benazir Bhutto and the party’s public meetings to be held all over Sindh and in the other provinces.

The chief minister briefed the PPPP president about the development portfolio, foreign funded development programmes and status of the Thar coal mining and power plant project.

Zardari said that the generation of coal-fired power was the dream of Benazir Bhutto and some progress was made when the PPP government was in power at the Centre, but the provincial government of Sindh had done a wonderful job.

The chief minister thanked the party chief for visiting the CM House.
