The Supreme Court ordered on Monday Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah to submit a report on alleged corruption in the Thar Coal project. 

A two-member bench, headed by Justice Gulzar Ahmed, was hearing the case at its Karachi Registry.

The court expressed its anger at the Sindh government over its failure to present an audit report of the project to the court.

The authority spent Rs105 billion and yet people in Thar don’t have a single glass of clean water to drink, remarked Justice Ahmed. “What has the Sindh government been doing?” The government failed to give people basic facilities, he said.

“All the money went into the pockets of officials,” said Justice Ahmed. The government has to work for the benefit of the people, he said. You [the Sindh government] can’t complete a single project with transparency, he remarked

The judge said that the Sindh CM was responsible for this. He should submit the reply in a month, the court directed.
