KARACHI - Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah Saturday said that the party nominates a candidate for chief minister and the provincial assembly elects him, and then it becomes the prerogative of the party and assembly to continue the chief minister or dismiss him whether he is in the jail or anywhere else.

"I am surprised to see that some of the media friends always talk about my (CM) arrest," he said and wondered why he would be arrested when he was cooperating with the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in its inquiry.

The chief minister, while addressing a press conference here at CM House, said that the PPP had 98 MPAs in the Sindh Assembly and after bye-election on two seats, Larkana and Johi, the party's strengthen would swell to 100.

Murad Ali Shah said that the NAB's question was about the authority of giving tariff, adding that it was his subject and he could 'write a thesis on it'; The lawmaker said  he had talked about the tariff in last four CCI meetings.

To a question about water shortage in Dadu, the chief minister said that he was planning remodeling and lining of Dadu Canal to resolve water shortage issues.
