PPP’s senior lawmaker Nisar Ahmed Khuhro on Saturday said Sindh’s water was being stolen at “the behest of rulers from Lahore”.
The senior provincial leader alleged the province’s agriculture has been destroyed and added that Sindh’s was being deprived of its due share of natural resources, including natural gas.
Khuhro was leading a sit-in of local party supporters on the road linking Badin with Karachi.
“The people of Sindh are facing a worsening energy crisis,” said the lawmaker and added the people of the province would never allow the rulers to steal the water of the province.
Khuhro also demanded that close aides of former president Asif Ali Zardari be presented in court and further said such tactics would never deter PPP workers.
Referring to the prime minister, Khuhro said he was only interested schemes which benefited his business partners and is not concerned for the real issues of the country.
“Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has failed to get any response from Sindh and is now desperately announcing fake packages in the towns of the province,” said the PPP leader referring to the premier’s recent announcement of a Rs1 billion package for Jacobabad district.
He claimed Zardari had “saved the country” after the assassination of Benazir Bhutto.
