Hyderabad: Compared to the 2013 elections, the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) won one more seat from Hyderabad in the 2018 elections. In the recent local government elections, the PPP managed to have its mayor for Hyderabad and in the coming elections, there is a strong possibility that the party will win all the seats of the Hyderabad district.

This was stated by PPP leader and former Sindh information minister Sharjeel Inam Memon as he held a press conference on Friday. He was accompanied by other PPP candidates from Hyderabad, including Jam Khan Shoro.

Memon said the people of Hyderabad had rejected the ethnic-based politics and they wanted to follow the philosophy of PPP founder Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and his daughter Benazir Bhutto.

He added that the public meeting of the PPP on February 4 would prove historic as the people would welcome Bilawal Bhutto Zardari in an overwhelming manner.

He maintained that the PPP would make a clean sweep in the elections from Sindh and Balochistan and would have decent seats from Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

He said PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari's slogan "Chuno Nai Soch Ko" symbolised ending the politics of revenge and hatred.

He said that at present, the whole world is praising the election campaign of Bilawal as he had been running a democratic election campaign in a true sense.

Memon was of the view that the people had been fed up with the slogans of Nawaz Sharif and his policies based on hatred and revenge.

The PPP leader said the slogan of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz was a call for giving Nawaz to Pakistan, but the people wanted basic necessities. He added that former prime minister Imran Khan was also not pro-public as he left the country in its worst economic crisis.

Memon said if there was a need to talk with independent members or other parties for the formation of the federal government, the PPP would hold talks as it had always tried to take all the political parties together.

He recalled that even after the 2008 polls, it was not necessary to take other parties together, but the PPP went for a coalition because it wanted consensus, not rivalry.

He said PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari believed in going forward through consensus, due to which the PPP willingly formed political alliances.

He predicted that on February 8, the PPP would emerge as the single largest party of the country by winning 150 seats of the National Assembly.

Earlier, Memon and other PPP leaders reviewed the preparations for Bilawal’s public meeting scheduled for Sunday at the Mehran Ground of Hussainabad Town.
