SUP begins march against PPP ‘corruption’


SUKKUR: The Sindh United Party’s Sukkur-Karachi march, which began in Sukkur on Wednesday to protest against widespread corruption in Pakistan Peoples Party’s government, indifference to the plight of rain and flood victims, land-grabbing and deteriorating law and order conditions in Sindh, reached Lakhi Ghulam Shah on Thursday.

The participants of the march were welcomed by Grand Democratic Alliance’s MPA Shaharyar Khan Mahar who presented SUP president Syed Zain Shah and other leaders Arjaks and Sindhi caps.

Shah said while addressing the marchers the ruling party had parceled out relief items meant for flood victims to its favourite ministers, advisers and waderas instead of handing them to the calamity-stricken people.

He said the rain-hit people were living under open sky and there was no government functionary and department to look after them because the ruling party was busy amassing ill-gotten money from corruption.

They said that dacoits and outlaws had challenged the writ of the state by killing innocent people and carrying out criminal activities without fear of law.

“We have launched this march to rid people and Sindh of the corrupt leaders and create awareness among them about political, social and economic issue confronting them and their land,” he said.

He said the PPP rulers were acting like foreign agents who had ruined both Sindh and Pakistan in collusion with the establishment. If Sindh and Pakistan were to be saved then people would have to get rid of PPP, he said.

Shah said that that was the reason his party urged the establishment to hold election in the country and allow people of Sindh to exercise their right to vote to rid their land of corrupt coterie of PPP leaders.

Mahar said that leaders of three mainstream political parties had now fallen silent on the issue of rising inflation for which they had launched long marches in previous government.

He advised people to cast vote in upcoming election in favour of people who would work sincerely for the welfare and prosperity of the country
