HYDERABAD, Dec 9: Ghinwa Bhutto, the chief of the Pakistan People’s Party (Shaheed Bhutto), has rejected the new local government system in the province and said that only one system is acceptable for whole of Sindh.

Speaking at a public meeting in Tando Allahyar on Sunday, she said that the present government was a continuation of the former military dictator Pervez Musharraf’s regime.

She said that the government had handed over cities to the Muttahida Qaumi Movement and rural areas to feudal at the cost of growing disenchantment among Sindhis, Pathans and Baloch.

She said that the struggle against the LG system would continue and the people of Sindh would never accept the distribution of Sindh.

Ms Bhutto said that her family was the real heir of the PPP. The PPP-SB would win the elections and strengthen the ideology of Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, she added.

She said that her party wanted ‘an autonomous Sindh’ otherwise autonomy could not be ensured.

The country needed democracy and economic empowerment of people, she said, adding that her party rejected the Kalabagh dam and feudal too.

She said that the Indus was not for Zardari or Punjabi Raj, as the river belonged to the people of Sindh.

She said that those who had sold Karachi could sell the Indus also.

She said that masses don’t owe anything to Bhutto family. She claimed that the PPP-SB represented the poor of the country and urged the people to back ‘heirs of Bhuttos’ as they always stood for the poor.

She said that the rulers were slaves of rich and imperialism.

PPP-SB Sindh president Taj Mohammad Domki, Faisal Dars, Inayat Umrani and others also spoke on the occasion.
