The leaders of the Grand Democratic Alliance (GDA) have demanded the Supreme Court to take notice of Sindh government’s alleged corruption.
Opposition leaders criticised the Sindh and federal government’s policies and their leaders after a closed door meeting presided by Pir Pagara at Kingri house on Saturday. GDA spokesperson, Ayaz Latif Palijo, said they would hold a rally against the Sindh government in Hyderabad on May 22 and in Karachi on June 5.
He criticised the Sindh government for initiating a crackdown against their workers in various districts and threatened to observe a shutter-down and wheel-jam strike in the province, if the provincial government did not stop targeting them.

“Sindh government has broken all past records of corruption and Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has closed his eyes by giving free hand to [Pakistan Peoples Party chief] Zardari to loot and plunder Sindh,” remarked Pakistan Muslim League- Functional leader and federal minister Sadaruddin Rashdi while addressing the media.
“We have decided to start door-to-door campaign against corruption and bad governance in Sindh,” said Palijo.
The meeting was also attended by former chief minister Arbab Ghulam Rahim, Irfanullah Marwat of PML-N and former Sindh home minister Dr Zulfiqar Mirza, among others.
