Festivals and the poor... By Alfred

06 February, 2014

Has the Sindh Festival made people aware of cultural preservation? The only concern should be the money spent on it. Millions of rupees have just been wasted for nothing. Some say that even the provincial government's resources were mobilised to make this programme successful.

Without considering the ongoing debate of damage done to the ancient historic site of Moenjodaro during the preparation of the stage, just imagining the money spent there should make us think about the poor people of that area. The area is known as the Bhutto electoral constituency. It would have been infinitely better had Bilawal Bhutto distributed the money among the deserving poor, needy and destitute. That would have gone a long way in getting him political benefit as well. Next time he should consider this before launching any such programmes.
