MIRPURKHAS, Aug 5: Sindh Minister for Livestock Abdul Haq Bhurt has said that conspiracies being hatched against the elected government by remnants of dictatorial regime will be foiled and added that the undemocratic elements now criticising the government for its four-month performance should tell the people what they did for them during their 11-year rule.

He was addressing a public meeting at Kunri and Nabisar road late on Monday.

On this occasion, Sindh Minister for Low Cost Housing and Human Resources Syed Ali Mardan Shah, MPA Ali Murad Rajar and Amin Lakho were also present.

Later, the minister visited a cattle farm on Nabisar Road which was established for the preservation and promotion of Thari cattle breeding.

Animal Husbandry Director Dr Ghulam Sarwar Shaikh told the minister that the farm was spread over 4266 acres of area and this year it earned Rs1.6 million.
