HYDERABAD, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 23rd Jul, 2021 ) :The Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) on Friday urged the Federal Government hold an inquiry into the Pole Mounted Transformer (PMT) blast in Hyderabad, which claimed 5 lives and injured 18 others.
He also demanded that compensation which was equal to the one received by the HESCO employees, who died or got injured during field work, should be paid to the deceased and injured of the Thursday's PMT blast.
"The Federal Government should also conduct a third-party audit of HESCO's financial management for the last 10 years," he said.
Jamil said the HESCO's officials and staff responsible for the incident should be booked in a FIR.
He recalled that Thursday's explosion was not the first such incident which had claimed lives of innocent people.
The MQM-P's leader also bemoaned that contrary to the claims of Pakistan Peoples Party's (PPP) Sindh government about improving the public health sector's services, Liaquat University Hospital Hyderabad's burns ward was not equipped to deal with patients with critical burns injuries.
Jamil said the party would raise voice over the incident in the national and provincial assemblies and in the Senate.
The MQM-P's MPAs Rashid Khilji and Nadeem Siddiqui and other party leaders accompanied Jamil.
