    Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah on Saturday announced Rs 100 million for development and rehabilitation of Moen-jo-Daro, one of the largest settlements of the ancient Indus Valley Civilisation and stressed on the proper preservation of historical site by mobilising all resources."I would have announced more funds had the devastating floods not lashed the province that displaced nearly eight million people creating emergency situation," said CM while presiding over the National Conference on Moen-jo-Daro held at a local hotel.

    The event was organised by the Culture Department in collaboration with United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organisation (Unesco).Chief Minister emphasised that all archaeological sites in the province should be maintained by all means and federal government's assistance was required for the purpose by all odds.

    Such a status, he said, could also be revived after proper projection of the historical site.

    She praised the incumbent government for the passage of amendment from the Lower House - National Assembly - that paved the way of development of several important subjects to the provinces.Sassui said it was after 64 years that some cultural subjects were devolved to Sindh, including 126 archaeological sites.

    She said meetings were afoot to assess damages caused on all archaeological sites of the province and planning underway for renovation of all identified sites.She said several schemes of culture department worth eight to nine million rupees were currently underway including revival of theatres and art galleries in many districts of the province.

    Sassui said that an international conference on a similar scale would also be organised to create awareness of precious ancient sites in the province and fund-raising for their maintenance and renovation.

    She thanked Chief Minister for announcing Rs 100 million in the worst circumstances facing Sindh due to ravaging floods.
