Resolutions were passed to hand over the executive power of gold, silver and copper mines in Sindh province to the federation, after which the mineral and mining powers of the country were handed over to the federation.
Sources say that resolutions were passed secretly by delaying the agenda from the Sindh Assembly.
According to Sindh government sources, the powers were given to the federation based on Article 144 of the Constitution, resolutions were passed due to intense pressure on the Rekodic Agreement.
Sources say that companies working on mineral resources did not want to enter into a contract without the federation.
According to the sources, the federation needs the approval of 2 provincial assemblies for powers over the mineral resources of the provinces. Sindh and Balochistan assemblies were used due to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf governments in Pakhtunkhwa and Punjab.
