STPP, PPP-SB protest


SUKKUR, Oct 7: A large number of activists of Pakistan People’s Party-SB and Sindh Taraqqi Pasand Party took out processions in Jacobabad on Sunday which terminated in sit-ins outside the press club.

They were protesting against the Sindh People’s Local Government law, terming it divisive and part of a larger conspiracy.

PPP-SB activists led by their leaders Syed Aslam Shah, Nadeem Qureshi and Khair Mohammad Mirjat criticised the ruling party for passing the disputed ordinance into law. By having done so, they had proved they were enemies of Sindh, they said.

If PPP and MQM had been sincere with Sindh they would not have passed such a divisive law. PPP had made the law only to appease MQM, they said. They said they paid homage to the MPAs who opposed the anti-Sindh bill on the floor of the assembly.

Activists of STPP also took out a procession here in protest against the LG law and police failure to arrest killers of a party leader, Abdul Malik Noohani.

Addressing the protesters outside the press club, STPP leaders Dil Murad Lashari, Abdul Nabi and Bilawal Dasti said that MQM was conspiring to divide Sindh but they would foil their conspiracy.

They said that they would besiege MPAs who supported the law and their protest would continue till the controversial law was repealed.
