It is sad to know that all major federal departments of Pakistan has some sort of hatred against 2nd largest city of Sindh–The cultural Capital of Sindh and 3rd Largest City of Pakistan one of the oldest in the world with longest bazaar in the world. Since 19979 Hyderabad Sindh has been ignored and a victim of Step Motherly treatment. All the federal Departments from PIA to Pakistan Railways, from PTV to Trade and Industries.

Our city has seen history of Broken Promises or Complete Shut Down. PIA dumped our city from their network and till this day they are not willing to resume flights. Pakistan Railways stole all our Railcars and already installed poles for electric trains and moved everything to Punjab Province. Then PTV was directed to work on opening a Television Station PTV Center in Hyderabad Sindh in 1970’s but in 1980’s this project was silently shelved and became the diet of dust. But the current news of Multan getting PTV Center and Pakistan Television Station in Multan will be functioning soon opens our old wounds. We are always happy to see modern development in all cities towns and villages of Pakistan. But we cannot accept double standards and discrimination and limited development in some pockets of Pakistan. I highly urge Hyderabad Government to contact PTV as soon as possible to remind them to fulfill their old promise of opening PTV Center in our City. It is injustice to see 3 PTV centers in one province and only one PTV center in Sindh.
This is for the kind information that after day night hard advocacy work of District Govt of Multan they are lucky to convince Govt of Italy to declare Multan the oldest living city in the world.
(WHICH I COMPLETELY DISAGREE CUZ THE OLDEST LIVING CITY ON EARTH IS HYDERABAD SINDH)
Well the ground work and propaganda of District govt of Multan successfully worked out and Italy has launched a Special project to Renovate and safeguard Multan under this project and Italy will spend 20 Million Dollars on Multan. At the same time Multan and Rome will be declared Twin Cities.
Good news for Multan but as citizen of Hyderabad Sindh i find it very unjust and misrepresented. I have been asking for a very long time in my blogs at ApnaHyderabad that Hyderabad Govt must take immediate initiative and i was the one who suggested to work on declaring Hyderabad and Rome twin cities. But no one paid any attention in higher ups in Hyderabad Govt and now we lost to Multan. Every other city in Punjab province is progressing very very fast on modern lines and thier aggressive and progressive planning is reaping fortunes for their cities. While we are going downwards. Please please please think on modern lines and plan for our Hyderabad Sindh. If Hyderabad Government had listened to my suggestions earlier and contacted Italy and France our Beloved city Hyderabad Sindh had got the same amount and project. Because genuinely Hyderabad Sindh is the Oldest living city on Earth and centuries old cultural capital of SINDH the Oldest civilization on Earth (Mohen-Jo-Daro— Indus Valley Civilization). But if we don’t get out to world capitals and promote then no one will know about us. We are living in a very fast times so we have to act fast. But sad to say in Our Hyderabad Sindh Higher ups don’t have that bold, strong future vision nor they have any aggressive planning. All they do is just copy cat some projects in Karachi.
That is not the solution to our unique city and its problems. We all know Hyderabad is the soul of Sindh as Paris is Soul of France, Rome is soul of Italy. We have to think on these lines.
