LAHORE: Blaming Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) for calling for Sindh’s division, Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan said that Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif was the one who demanded a Karachi province a few months back.
He added that the division of Sindh was a concerted effort to promote hatred among people at the grassroots level to secure vote banks, but the debate is not reflective of the public sentiments.
“The PPP [Pakistan Peoples Party] government and its allies are actively involved in this conspiracy which will intensify when electioneering is in full swing,” said Khan.
He further warned the government and its allies that they were treading a “dangerous path” which can lead to unprecedented violence and destruction in the province.
Khan expressed PTI’s resolve to oppose this conspiracy with “all its political might and stand against political groups playing with the lives of the people of Sindh for their political goals”.
