Expansion on cards: PPP looks for a miracle

Sindh Cabinet is likely to be extended in a couple of days, it is learnt here.
The reliable sources informed National Courier that  Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah would extend his cabinet  inducting  four more PPP MPAs as  ministers besides appointing  three more special assistants. The sources further disclosed that the PPP MPAs Giyan Chand Israni, Jam Akram Dharejo, Nasir Hussain Shah and Muhammad Bux Maher would get the porfolios of ministers in second phase of the Cabinet’s extension. Furthermore, Zia-ul-Hasan Lanjhar, Fayyaz Butt and Imdad Patafi would become the special assistants to the Sindh Chief Minister.Replying to a question, the sources further revealed that the Giyan Chand Israni is likely to get the portfolio of Minister for Wild Life and Forests, while Jam Akram Dharejo is expected to get the ministry of Youth Affairs. The sources further informed this scribe that the PPP MPA Nasir Hussain Shah and Muhammad Bux Mahar would likely to get the ministries of Commerce and Industries and Mines & Minerals respectively.It is pertinent to mention here that the senior minister Nisar Ahmed Khuhro has already been appointed as the minister for food and parliamentary affairs, adding that Jam Mahtab Dahar has replaced Khuhro.Dr Sikandar Mandhro, who was earlier working as minister for environment, is now the health minister. Meanwhile, former home minister Sohail Anwar Siyal has been given the portfolio of the agriculture department. Frankly, there is nothing new or indicative of change in stuffing the cabinet with as many individuals as possible. And the key question that should be asked of this supersized grouping is: will they deliver? As a lawmaker speaking to this paper admitted, ‘political compulsions’ had a role to play in the jumbo cabinet. This is clear as the relatives of PPP stalwarts, ‘influentials’ such as tribal chieftains, and other such luminaries have been included in the line-up. No doubt many of these individuals excel in their fields. But does Sindh need such a top-heavy government to solve its myriad problems? Have these cabinet members been taken on to improve governance in the province, or due to political reasons? Rather than having such a large number of captains steering Sindh’s ship, should Murad Ali Shah not have formed a leaner cabinet, consisting of capable lawmakers and professionals who could address the province’s dire issues?However, now that the cabinet has been expanded, we hope the list of its members does not increase exponentially. More importantly, we hope that the new set-up delivers and does not make the mistakes the earlier cabinet made. The PPP has been slammed by its critics for failing on the governance front in the province. This is Mr Shah’s chance to prove his critics, and that of his party, wrong.
