NEW DELHI: Mr. G.M. Sayed, President of the Sind Provincial Muslim League arrived here today [Dec 20] from Karachi. He went to Qaid-e-Azam Jinnah’s residence, 10, Aurangzeb Road, New Delhi at 2-30 p.m. and was seen coming out at 6-30 p.m. When questioned by Pressmen, Mr. Sayed declined to say anything just then.
