He added that conspiracies are being hatched to speared ethnicity in the province, urging the people of all communities to make these conspiracies unsuccessful.

Separately, the PML-N Sindh Chief Shah Muhammad Shah asked that the killings of three labourers in Larkana and Irshad Ranjhani in Karachi should not be diverted towards ‘ethnic’ issue. “Some opportunists are trying to spread ethnicity in these circumstances which is very dangerous for the province and condemnable,” he added.
