The PPP leader, while announcing the ‘massive power show,’ said the government was behaving like a dictator and it was high time to send it packing.
KARACHI — The opposition Pakistan Peoples Party has announced that it would stage a “massive power show” in Karachi on October 18 from the platform of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), which the party says would the “beginning of the end” for the incumbent Imran Khan-led government.
This was announced on Wednesday by President of PPP’s Sindh chapter Nisar Khuhro following a meeting of the party’s executive committee at the Chief Minister House, Dawn reports.
Briefing the media Nisar Khuhro said, “The October 18 rally would be held at Bagh-i-Jinnah adjacent to Quaid’s (Mohammad Ali Jinnah) mausoleum. The federal government has already started panicking and the October 18 rally will lead to its fall.”
People from all over Sindh would attend the rally, which would be addressed by PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari and other opposition leaders, said Khuhro.
The PPP leader said the Wednesday meeting also demanded that the federal government withdraw the presidential ordinance aimed at annexing a part of Sindh by taking control of the twin islands off Karachi’s coast.
Khuhro said the government was behaving like a dictator and it was high time to send it packing.
He also blamed Prime Minister Imran Khan for being unaware of the country’s problems and asserted that Karachi was very much part of Sindh whose people had given their mandate to the PPP.
Khuhro asked the prime minister to act as the chief executive of the country, and not of a certain specific area.
