The Additional Chief Secretary called the solar lights "substandard", Why was it also ignored? Is it true that you could not justify the plan in front of the committee set up by the Sindh High Court? Is it true that the funds were released at the behest of Sharjeel Memon, the mastermind of the scandal? Sharjeel Memon has received kickbacks by awarding contracts to favorite companies? Accused involved in corruption with Sharjeel Memon have also returned money through plea bargain?

Questionnaire comprising eight questions was delivered to Syed Murad Ali Shah through his Principal Secretary.
