PTI’s popularity creating insecurity in PPP ranks: Alvi

KARACHI – Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Sindh Chapter President Dr Arif Alvi has said that growing popularity of PTI in Sindh province has created insecurity in Pakistan People Party (PPP) ranks. Realising it provincial rulers of Sindh resorted to political vendetta but people of province would defeat this strategy in next general election.

Alvi who is also Member of National Assembly from Karachi Constituency expressed these views while addressing a press conference at Karachi Press Club (KPC) here on Wednesday. PTI Sindh senior executive vice president Haleem Adil Sheikh, PTI leader Zaid Talpur and others were also present.

Speaking to media men, Dr Alvi said we strongly condemn the hooliganism of police in Umerkot. He said Zaid Talpur is a precious asset of our party and our political opponents should stop their vendetta. He demanded that the death of Shafi Muhammad Solangi in police custody should be investigated.

He said the political importance of the PPP has already been vanished in Sindh province. He said the PTI would arrange a huge rally in Larkana on January 23 that would reset the direction of politics in Sindh.

He said the rulers have damaged the national economy. The burden of loans has been constantly increasing. In Sindh, the growers have been exploited brutally. He charged that a mafia has devastated the sugarcane growers of Sindh. He claimed in Sindh dozens of sugar mills belong to this mafia and these mills are sucking the blood of poor sugarcane growers.

Condemning torture on the teachers during protest demonstration, PTI leader said that provincial rulers even did not spare the teachers as they were beaten up by police. He said the government instead of holding talks with the teachers is using brutal power to suppress them, which is an undemocratic process. He said party stood with the protesting teachers in their struggle. He said in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) all NTS-passed teachers have already been regularised.

PTI leader Haleem Adil Sheikh, on the occasion, said the growing popularity of the PTI in Sindh has baffled the rulers. He said in Sindh the rulers have stopped supply of irrigation water to lands of our workers. He said our workers are being beaten up and we strongly condemn this act. He said in Sindh the people are compelled to drink gutter-mixed water. He said we will get the people of Sindh rid of civil dictatorship and thieves. He said basic facilities are not available to the people of Sindh due to the corruption of the ruling PPP.

He said sewerage water of Hyderabad, Sukkur, Dadu, Larkana and other cities and towns are directly released into the river and canals and people are compelled to drink this sewerage -mixed water. He said we will not leave alone any PTI worker in Sindh and we will bravely fight the atrocities of the rulers. He said the PTI would form the next government and make all these hooligans accountable for their misdeeds. Separately, Dr Arif Alvi, Haleem Adil Sheikh after the press conference attended the sit-in of the protesting NTS teachers as a token of solidarity and assured them to support their just struggle.
