KARACHI – The Speaker of Sindh Assembly Agha Siraj Durrani has almost lost neutrality only to criticize Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan as he is just two days behind from a speculated big rally in Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) base camp Larkana.
Agha Siraj Durrani – who is supposed to keep neutrality and avoid politically inclined statements due to his stature – gave a statement on Wednesday in which he reiterated the fact that his party worked the most for people of Sindh.
“PPP has no fear of PPP. We have been working for Sindh since long. Imran Khan’s rally in Larkana will not trouble PPP in any manner,” he said.
PTI has a scheduled rally in Larkana on November 21. A city believed to be the stronghold of PPP for its founding leaders including Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto and Benazir Bhutto hailed from this land. Imran Khan made a statement few days ago that his primary purpose of Larkana rally was to break nexus of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif with former President and co-chairman of PPP Asif Ali Zardari.
Moreover, Imran Khan had also decided to contest the next general elections from native constituency of Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto and Benazir Bhutto i.e. NA-207 Larkana. Currently the younger sister of co-chairman – Faryal Talpur – is the sitting lawmaker from this constituency.
On Tuesday, Chief Minister of Gilgit Baltistan Mehdi Shah had bashed Imran Khan for trying to wake up people stating that late Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto has already done that long ago.
Although PPP leaders are criticizing Imran Khan and PTI but Sindh government has already allowed conditional permission to hold the rally in Larkana. According to few sources the conditions include a term of not using the harsh language against PPP leaders.
