Federal Planning Minister Asad Umar declared on Sunday that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) will commence a march against the controversial Sindh local government law on February 26.
The federal minister told a press conference in Karachi that the PTI will march from Ghotki to Karachi on February 26 to protest the Sindh Local Government (Amendment) Act 2021.
“The ruling party’s central leadership would also attend the protest gathering on February 26,” the federal minister stated, adding that the PTI will overthrow the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) administration in Sindh.
“In 2023, the PTI will establish the next government in Sindh,” the minister asserted.
Federal Maritime Affairs Minister Ali Zaidi spoke at the event, stating that the combined opposition in Sindh will launch a march from Ghotki on February 26 – one day before the PPP’s planned lengthy march to Islamabad.
The Sindh Assembly passed the amendment bill for a new local government (LG) structure with a majority last December, despite considerable objections from the opposition.
It is important to note that numerous political parties in Sindh are contesting a contentious local government bill.
Mustafa Kamal, the leader of the Pak-Sarzameen Party (PSP), turned the party’s protest demonstration in Karachi’s Fawara Chowk near Governor House into a sit-in today to demand the repeal of the contentious Sindh LG law.
Today, Mustafa Kamal’s Pak-Sarzameen Party (PSP) staged a rally near Governor House in Karachi, demanding that the contentious Sindh LG law be repealed.
Mustafa Kamal, speaking at the rally, said that Karachiites will change Pakistan’s fate once the country faces significant financial and administrative challenges.
After successful talks with the Sindh government over a controversial local government (LG) law, Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) ended its 28-day sit-in in Karachi recently.
After fruitful talks with a delegation from the Sindh government, JI Karachi chairman Hafiz Naeem-ur-Rehman announced the end of a 29-day sit-in in the early hours of Friday night.
