Meeting: Three member delegation of Awami Tehrik Sindh, led by its Secretary General Ayaz Soomro, called on Secretary General Jamaat-e-Islami Liaqat Baloch at his residence on Saturday and discussed with him the situation prevailing in the country.

The delegation expressed condolences on the sad demise of JI leader Qazi Husain Ahmed and Prof Ghafoor Ahmed and paid tributes to them for their rich services for the nation and the country.

Ayaz Soomro told the JI leader that the Sindh card had slipped from the PPP hand and it was time for the democratic forces to join hands for getting rid of Zardari gang.

Liaqat Baloch said that the situation in Sindh province was alarming. He said there was deep hatred for the PPP and President Zardari in the Sindh province, and an anti MQM alliance was indispensable to get rid of the extortionists and target killers in Karachi and Hyderabad. Similarly, he said, there were strong reservations about the local government system. As such, the unity of the democratic forces for the welfare and development of the people of Sindh was the crying need of the hour. He assured the delegation that the JI would fully cooperate with the democratic forces in this respect.
