ISLAMABAD: Ex Central Information Secretary of the Pakistan People’s Party Senator Taj Haider has strongly protested against the attempt of the Federal Government to get the fraudulent Census results validated on the forum of the CCI.
In a press statement Saturday, he said that the summary being presented by the Statistics Division at the CCI meeting hurriedly called on Sunday was in gross violation of the agreement signed by Leaders of all political parties in the Senate calling for recount in 5% blocks through a method that counted every resident in a household.
This agreement was concluded in a meeting chaired by the Prime Minister and was guaranteed to be followed in ‘letter and, spirit’ by none other than Respected Raja Zafarul Haq Sahib on the floor of the Senate.
Senator Taj Haider said that the gross undercount in Sindh and FATA not only deprives them of true representation in elected Houses, their true share in divisible resources and job quotas but cuts at the roots of the Federation by insulting the consensus reached in the House of the Federation. The fraudulent de-jure method employed in Census 2017 records migrants in their provinces of origin and does not count illegal residents at all. NNI
