He said we are not afraid of the police and ‘aunty corruption’ of Sindh rulers. He said Zardari should see what his ministers are doing.
It is the matter for shame for the government of Sindh. He said the destination of our coming protest would the chief minister house.
He said the next mandate in Sindh would be of PTI. He said now gas supply has been resumed and it is high time that chief minister Murad Ali Shah should tell the people where the water supply to Karachi is.
