DADU, Oct 4: Activists belonging to the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz marched from Jamshoro to Dadu town on Thursday in protest against the Sindh local government law.
Party leaders Liaquat Ali Jatoi and Salim Zia led the march attended by a large number of people, women and activists of the party.
Addressing the protesters, Mr Jatoi said the local government law had been rejected by the people of Sindh. He said the PML-N would abolish this law if it came into power.
He said it was due to the wrong policies of the PPP government that corruption had increased among high-ranking officials in government departments. He said that by giving key posts to low-cadre employees the service structure of the government had been affected.
He said the law and order situation had worsened across Sindh and crime rate had increased by 100 per cent under the PPP government. He said the people of Sindh had launched a drive against the PPP government in Sindh.
Mr Jatoi said the PML-N would end the power crisis and corruption in the country. The party would devise a formula to eradicate unemployment from the country. He said this protest drive would bring about a change in the country.
He said the people of Sindh did not like MNAs and MPAs of the PPP and were therefore not coming to their homes.
He said that police had been deployed in front of the houses of PPP MNAs and MPAs in Sindh to provide them security from the public.
He said nationalists were supporting the PML-N in the forthcoming general election by adjusting seats.
He claimed that the PML-N would secure 80 per cent seats of MNAs and MPAs from Sindh and it would make the government in Islamabad and in Sindh.
Salim Zia said there was only leader, Mohammad Nawaz Sharif, who could save Pakistan from crises. He said the PMLN was with the people of Sindh on the issue of the local government law.
PML-N local leaders Pir Bux Babar, Syed Zaffar Ali Shah and Karim Ali Jatoi also spoke on the occasion.
Earlier in the day, the leaders addressed public gatherings in Sehwan and Bhan Syedabad.
