BUREWALA: Federal Minister for Statistics Kamran Michael said Saturday that the Ministry of Statistics had sent complete data of the population census to the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to make preparations for this year’s general elections. Responding to a query regarding the population census, the minister said that all the provinces have sent their technical teams and expressed satisfaction over the census results, adding that except for MQM, all other political parties and the Sindh government had expressed their confidence in census results from Sindh. The government does not want to take steps in a hurry and our top priority is to reach the original suspect. “Though Christians are a minority in Pakistan, but their patriotism is beyond any doubt,” he said. The minister also said that Pakistan was passing through a critical time as terrorists continued to attack schools, mosques, imambargahs, churches and religious places of minorities.
