The Pakistan Peoples Party has been blamed for patronising the tribal chiefs and clans involved in bloodshed and violence in rural Sindh.

Grand Democratic Alliance Secretary General Ayaz Latif Palijo alleged on Saturday that the PPP’s Sindh government does not want to see an end to the tribal conflicts and crimes perpetrated by the party-associated tribal chiefs.

The Qomi Awami Tehreek chairman said that over the past two decades, the PPP regime has planted its people in police and the district administration. The whole provincial establishment is in control of one party. In such a situation, SSPs of all districts cannot dare to take action against such politically influential figures linked to PPP.

Therefore, numerous cases of murder, kidnapping and armed clashes are settled through the tribal chiefs rather than the law of the country.

He said that Sindhi- and Urdu-speaking people were under “occupation of rulers”. They were paying taxes to government, he argued. He said these communities were being crushed under a conspiracy.
