KARACHI - Pakistan Peoples Party Central Executive Committee member and Senior Education and Literacy Minister Pir Mazharul Haq said that conspiracies were made in past to separate Sindh from Karachi.

At that time, Urdu-speaking people opposed this and the issue of Mohajir province is spread by the agencies. They want to keep the present democratic government busy in non issues.

Talking to a delegation of Institute of Management Sciences, Lahore here at his office, he said that Shaheed Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto gave the people awareness regarding the power of the vote and the people went against the non democratic forces of the time. Professor Muhammad Waseem, Noman Baig, Sameen, Maryam and others were also present on the occasion.

Pir Mazharul Haq said, “Whatever campaign the agencies have planned against the PPP, they could not get success because the masses of the country are with the PPP. People like Mumtaz Bhutto and Liaquat Ali Jatoi are the product of dictatorship. Liaquat Jatoi who is doing propaganda against PPP, is the most corrupt man himself.”

He said that Liaquat Jatoi let loose the hell on the people continuously for ten years and now on the instruction of the agencies he is changing his political loyalties. Pir Mazharul Haq said Benazir Bhutto was the first who realized the crisis of electricity and started the project of Keti Bunder in collaboration with Hong Kong however Shaukat Aziz did not honour the pact but PPP having come in power had started the project again and in 2016 the generation of electricity would start.

Mazhar said that Nawaz Sharif was responsible for the shortage of electricity. In the restoration movement of Chaudhary Iftikhar, my son Barrister Pir Mujeebul Haq and other lawyers of Dadu went behind the bars.

He said that constitutionally Prime Minister was not eligible on the contrary due to the verdict of Supreme Court the popularity of the Prime Minister had gone up. Senior Minister said, “The PPP has always respected judiciary while Nawaz League attacked judiciary in its tenure and it is on record. He apologizes a dictator entered into a ten years pact and fled from the country such type of the people cannot be called a leader who left his people in trouble.”
