The Grand Democratic Alliance (GDA), an anti-PPP political platform in Sindh, demonstrated a power show in Sukkur on Sunday where its leaders claimed that they will form government in the province after the next general elections.
A large number of political workers participated in the convention, which was chaired by Pakistan Muslim League-Functional chief Pir Sabghatullah Shah Rashidi.
Senior political leaders, including Ghoas Ali Shah, Zulfiqar Mirza, Safdar Abbasi, federal minister Sadaruddin Shah Rashidi, Ghulam Murtaza Jatoi, Ayaz Latif Palejo, MPA Nusrat Sehar Abbasi and others addressed the political gathering.
The GDA leaders vowed that they will give tough time to PPP in the next general elections and criticised the incumbent provincial government.
The speakers alleged that the province has been ruined under the PPP rule during the past 10 years.
The people of Sindh were looking towards judiciary, and not to the government, for redressal of their miseries, the speakers claimed.
Arbab Rahim quits PML-N over Faizabad crackdown
Former Sindh chief minister and PML-N leader Arbab Ghulam Rahim announced to quit the party in protest against the use of force on Faizabad protesters.
“I will have nothing to do with the PML-N since today,” he said, adding that what happened yesterday [Saturday] should not have happened.
Terming PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif and PPP co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari as two sides of the same coin, Rahim said Sharif was equally responsible for what he called the dismal situation of Sindh.
He held Sharif responsible for controversial amendment in Elections Act 2017.
Turning his guns towards the PPP he said that the party was known for bogus recruitments in the provincial education department. He further claimed the mystery of Benazir’s murder will soon be unfolded.
