The Grand Democratic Alliance (GDA) will hold a sit-in at the Moro National Highway near Sadoja on Tuesday (today) to protest against, what they call, fraudulent elections. A statement issued by the party reads that their central leaders would speak at the demonstration and announce their future course of action. This will be the second leg of the GDA’s protest campaign in Sindh. On February 16 they held a protest at the Jamshoro interchange on the Super Highway.

Speaking to the protesters, GDA chief Pir Sibghatullah Shah Rashdi, known as Pir Pagara, had commented that the army had tested everyone. He mentioned the possibility of an emergency or martial law being imposed in the country, with the judiciary giving it legal cover.

Several other political parties, including the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and the Jamaat-e-Islami, who have a similar stance as the GDA’s that the 2024 general elections were “rigged”, had joined the protest demonstration.
