The current socio-political framework is destroying the state and this system needs to be rebooted, opined Pak Sarzameen Party chairperson Mustafa Kamal on Friday.

"The so-called democratic forces do not carry out much promised electoral reforms after winning elections. The winners know that if they make reforms, they will lose the next election so the thieves always keep the door open," said Kamal, in a statement issued on the day. The country needs reforms in health, education, and other key sectors including the judiciary, he remarked.

He was speaking during his visit to Hyderabad, where he invited intellectuals from across Sindh to help his party in fostering harmony in Sindh.

Hyderabad is the second largest city in the province and it is on the brink of destruction, said Kamal.

He levelled accusations at both the Pakistan Peoples Party and the Muttahida Qaumi Movement for playing 'divisive politics' in the province on the basis of language.

"[We have] inculcated a sense of consciousness among Muhajirs that they must not link PPP's prejudice and brutality with the Sindhi nation. Likewise, the Sindhis must not associate MQM's demand for new province with the Muhajirs at all," read the statement.

Kamal denounced the PPP's divisive politics and stated that decisions taken on ethnic basis were creating resentment among the people.
