KARACHI: With senate elections due today, heightened political activity saw the Chief Minister Sindh Syed Qaim Ali Shah meet the Jatoi brothers of National Peoples Party, Shahi Syed of the Awami National Party and Ghous Bux Mahar of the PML-Q on Thursday, to garner support for the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) candidates. After discussing the issue with Mahar, the chief minister later told reporters that the PPP always believed in the policy of reconciliation and that all his coalition partners had assured him of their full support. When asked about PML-Q (likeminded), Shah replied, “We are not worried about three to four votes that Arbab Rahim’s party may get. PPP, with the support of its coalition partners, will win the senate election with a resounding majority.”
