IK says PPP, MQM divided people in Sindh


DHARKI: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Friday strongly criticised the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), alleging that Asif Zardari and Altaf Hussain divided people in Sindh on the basis of ethnicity between Sindhis and Mohajirs.

Talking to media in Dharki, the PTI chief claimed that vote-bank in the province was created by spreading hatred among people.

“Karachi cannot be separated from Sindh,” he said.

Khan said that there was an apparent tug of war between the MQM and PPP in Sindh for power, however, they were allies in real.

He announced that his party’s alliance will be with the poor people of Sindh.

Imran Khan assured that he will reach out to every nook and corner of Sindh to mobilise people.

In Sindh, farmers and animals have the same suffering and no one is bothered by that. The powerful ruling elite in the province themselves don t follow the rule of law, he added.

He said Sindhi people are paying the cost of corruption.

“I have been saying this for 19 years that I had never seen this much poverty anywhere in Pakistan that I have seen in the interior Sindh,” the PTI Chairman said.

“We will bring people up from every socio-economic status.”

Lashing out at the Pakistan Peoples Party, Imran Khan remarked that future of the PPP is doomed. The PPP had ideological workers  support but Asif Ali Zardari has ruined the party.

“Even the military dictators did not damage PPP as much as Zardari did,” he said.

Khan said the best solution to Sindh s problem is the devolution of power to grass root level through an empowered local government system. NNI
