Sindh not given complete share under NFC Award: Bilawal

Responding to indictment of Asif Ali Zardari in Toshakhana reference, Bilawal said that former president is answering false allegations. He added that they are being punished for 18th amendment in the constitution and NFC Award and challenged authorities to file an FIR against them for the amendment and NFC instead of making fake allegations.

He also lashed out at federal government for transferring IG Punjab and said that Centre refused to change IG Sindh on request of the provincial government but till now five IGs have been changed in Punjab.
