    The black day in the history of Sindh. PPP sold Sindh’s interests in order to appease MQM. People of Sindh will never accept it. Both parties have completely IGNORED the sensitivities of people of Sindh. They cant IMPOSE a system without will of the people. People of Sindh will resist it through democratic means. This is time that political parties, civil society and media give heeds to our demands and reservations, otherwise nothings wont stabilize in Sindh.

    LB system is actually in the benefit of the common people in general around the world. Who it’s not good for is the selfish leaders who want to keep the poor and needy under their control by making their life forever miserable. That’s what these people have been getting from these nationalist leaders. Their backwardness can be turned toward advancement through freedom from stagnation. The poor and the helpless were at the mercy of these nationalist all along, they have no plan for them together or seperate, period. If Punjab don’t want LB system on their land it’s their problem but we should let the destitute of Sindh to get from under the claws of misery rewarded to them from their leaders for centuries. Now if these poor are having a chance at local voice, freedom & development why they should not be able get it? Why should they stay in misery? The system that whole world is adopting for local voice and growth can help them too. Nobody is selling the people to no-one. A failed system and leaders are replaced with efficient one. The local leaders can be new leader even in the new system if they educate themselves and change with time their primitive ways before they will be left behind, and left behind they will with what they are afraid of. They should come forward and help their people with the world’s proven system. No dictator designed it in his office or drawing room, period. That’s may be coincidental but it’s a blessing in disguise for the locals.
