On Saturday afternoon, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) launched its Haqooq-i-Sindh March from Ghotki to Karachi in opposition to the Pakistan Peoples Party-led provincial administration.
The march, which was headed by PTI vice-chairman Shah Mahmood Qureshi and party Sindh president Ali Zaidi, began in Ghotki’s Kamoo Shaheed, which is close to the Sindh-Punjab border, and wound its way across the city.
Leaders of the party from throughout the province are taking part in the anti-PPP march, which will travel through 27 districts of the province and arrive in Karachi nine days after passing through the province.
Qureshi, speaking to PPP supporters before the march began, criticized PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari and the provincial administration, saying they would be held accountable for the “15-year continuous theft” of Sindh’s finances. Qureshi also slammed the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP).
“The moment has arrived to free the people of Sindh from the bonds of slavery,” he declared emphatically. “Sindh and Sindhis are ready for a new era of development.”
After spending the night in Sukkur, the march will depart on Sunday, February 27th, for Shikarpur, Kashmore, and Jacobabad, before continuing on to Qambar Shahdad Kot and Larkana the following day (Feb 28).
Tando Muhammad Jam, Tando Allahyar, and Matiari will be the final destinations of the march, which will begin on March 3 and travel to Umerkot, Tharparkar, and Badin. The next stop will be Hyderabad, which will be on March 5. The march will arrive in Karachi on March 6, according to the schedule.
