Sindh Pakistan People’s Party President Nisar Ahmed Khuhro has said the losing political parties resorting to protest sit-ins in Sindh against the poll victory of the PPP are making a mockery of the public mandate given in the fresh general elections.

A statement issued on Monday quoted Khuhro as saying that the protest sit-ins being staged by the anti-PPP political forces were anti-people activities in the province. He said the people of Sindh had rejected the Grand Democratic Alliance and the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl in the general elections, so these parties shouldn’t disgrace the people’s mandate by staging protest sit-ins.

Khuhro advised the agitating political parties to call off their protest plans, considering other serious challenges the country faced. He said the anti-PPP political forces had started an agitation drive in the province as a vengeful act against the people of Sindh for their act of not voting in their favour in the latest general elections.

He said the anti-PPP parties by staging protest sit-ins shouldn’t vent their anger on the people due to their voting decision in the general polls. He said the people had rejected the anti-PPP electoral alliances formed in the province. Khuhro believed that the opposition of the people of Sindh to the agitating political parties would further grow as they deemed the latest protest sit-ins an anti-public move. He maintained that the agitating parties had been upset about the outstanding poll victory of the PPP in the polls. “The Peoples Party has secured the latest electoral victory based on the mandate given by the people of Sindh as other parties shouldn’t be in trouble on this development,” he said.

Khuhro said the PPP was all set to form the next Sindh government for the fourth consecutive term with a majority of 110 members in the provincial assembly, including those elected on the reserved seats. He said the PPP didn’t require support from any other political party to form the next government in Sindh. Still, it would ensure that its upcoming regime would serve all people in the province without any discrimination.
