The Federal government of Pakistan has suggested shifting the headquarters of Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) from Karachi to Islamabad.
However, this suggestion has been termed ‘biased’ in the Provincial Assembly of Sindh.
According to Sindh Assembly, Federal government is depriving Sindh once again from shifting the headquarters of the flag carrier airways of Pakistan from the metropolis to the country’s capital.
MPA, Nida Khuhro of Pakistan Peoples Party moved a resolution in Sindh Assembly for condemning this decision by the Federal government.
This resolution was also signed by other members of PPP as well.
Two members of MQM-Pakistan, Kunwar Naveed and Javed Hanif also supported this resolution.

MPA Nida Khuhro said:
It is yet another biased action by the federal government that goes against Sindh. All this shows the federal government does not want to see the provinces strengthening.
PIA was originally founded in 1946 as Orient Airways in Calcutta, India. After the partition, it became Pakistan International Airlines in 1955 with its headquarters in Karachi, the country’s capital at that time. The seat of the government was relocated to Islamabad later.
Now the Federal government has suggested moving the headquarters of PIA from the metropolis to country’s capital. Let’s see what is going to be their take on this after Sindh government has shown aversion against this decision.
