“The people of Sindh have faced a lot of injustices,” he said adding that consequently several parts the province were even more backwards like Balochistan.
He said the Zardari made the people of Sindh subservient to him, and indulged in politics of fear and oppression, set up politicised cases against opponents, and even stopped water supply of farmers.
Referring to former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, the PTI chief said that another disease was in Punjab who has now been ousted. He said that both Sharif and Zardari are the two biggest looters in the country.
However, he said that chose Nawabshah, the hometown of Zardari, to oppose him who will the next to be ousted. “It is now Zardari’s turn to ask ‘Why was I was ousted’ and to send him back to jail.”
“Zardari is to the Bhutto family what captain Safdar is to the Sharif family,” he quipped adding that ways Zardari obtained his massive wealth, including dozens of sugar mills, is not unknown.
He promised and expressed hope that the ‘night of darkness’ will begin to fade away soon, and that he has come to fight against the oppressors.
