Larkana, the model city?

Larkana faces unannounced loadshedding owing to which UPS has also become dysfunctional.

It is burning 50°C and we are without electricity for 16 hours in a day in a city that has been a hub for the PPP. The city, for which many billions of rupees were allocated to make it a “model city’’ is actually a wreck.

There are no traffic rules, no signals and no traffic policemen. There is no sewerage disposal system. The city has become congested, roads are blocked and in this heat we are left clueless.

The authorities should take notice and provide us with our basic needs.

Dr. Sahib, if your city keep voting for PPP this is exactly they be keep getting. When are they going to understand that you cannot take donkey to horse course to win a race. You must prioritize your interest not the interest of those who have given you nothing in last 65 years.

Now that the polls are over, We should focus on Kashmir and the suffering of the Kashmiri people. Instead of crying over such trivial issues we should channelize our energy towards the plight of the Kashmiris.

When the people of Larkana begin to escape from the delusions of deceased Bhuttos, cleverly crafted by PPP and Zirdari to hoodwink the people, and emerge in to the reality of real politics, by electing the people who will serve their interest, Larkana will automatically begin to change for the better.

Five Years ?. PPP is continuously winning in Sindh from 1971. They won every single election and done the same thing what they do in Federal. Corruption and no help to the poor. No plan to upgrade people living standard just Khapay Khapay.

That is why the misery continues. If Bhuto had died, when he died, situation would be better today.
