Recommendations for new Local Government law in Sindh
By: Naseer Memon
It is very pertinent that the Sindh Government is taking serious steps towards a new local government law and eventually a local government system in the province. It is overdue and much desired, not just for the fulfillment of Constitutional obligation, Honorable Supreme Court’s orders or compliance to PPPP’s own manifesto but more importantly for effective service delivery at grassroots level which is unfortunately currently malfunctioning. Over the past few years, the Sindh Provincial Government had been oscillating between the local government law of 1979 and newly promulgated SPLGA 2012.
