SUKKUR - Sindh Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah on Saturday said people had voted for the PPP government and President Asif Zardari which was the main cause of concern for PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif.
Addressing a public gathering at Kammo Shaheed on the Sindh-Punjab border, Shah said the people had voted for the PPP in the last general elections and the party came to power because of the struggle and sacrifices of Benazir Bhutto, adding that the party workers advised Nawaz to be patient till December.
Criticising the PML-N chief, Shah said Nawaz did not know the ABC of politics and was only creating chaos in the country. He said the PPP was well aware of the conspiracies against its government and it would not let the sacrifice of Benazir Bhutto for democracy go in waste.
He said Nawaz was a coward and ran away to Jeddah during Musharraf’s regime and said the PML-N did nothing for Sindh during its tenures in government.
He was of the view that being a businessman, politics was not the field for Nawaz.
“Nawaz Sharif had taken dictation from a dictator whereas the PPP runs the government in accordance with the wishes and aspirations of the masses. It has given employment to the jobless and empowered the women in the country,” he added. He declared that the PPP would emerge victorious in the next general election as well and maintained that the government was the government of poor masses and that it had served the people of the entire country without any discrimination. The chief minister claimed that this gathering of more than one million was a warning to the PML-N leadership that the people of Sindh and of the country, could head for Lahore. He also pointed out that Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani had seen many difficulties and yet he was steadfast and determined.
