“The Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) would sweep the general elections 2018 throughout the country as the PPP Chairman, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, has won the hearts of Punjab.”

This was observed by the Speaker of the Sindh Assembly, Agha Siraj Durrani, while talking to media at the residence of elder of All Sindhi-Pathan Nawabshah community, Jan Muhammad Pathan. Durrani contradicted the allegations of horse trading leveled against the PPP, adding that other parties were attempting to pass the impression as if their hands were clean. 

“That who fed whom and how much quantity of grass was given to the horses would be known soon but even if anyone have evidence of horse trading he or she should show it,” he said. 

When asked Imran Khan if would contest from Karachi, Durrani said that it is Imran’s wish to contest general election from any part of the country but the factual position is that he would bag how many votes public would see. 

He said that the PPP has always served the masses due to which public has identified failed politicians who had claimed the demise of the PPP. 

Speaking on the differences having erupted in MQM ranks, he stated that the PPP was neither making profit out of it nor was is the party policy. 

However if any political party faces crisis of such situation then party workers get disappointed and join other parties and this was the reason that others were turning to the PPP. 

Durrani considered it to be the beauty of democracy, insisting that by election and general election have big difference and he was confident to win as the people now desired a change.

Agha Siraj Durrani lashes out at CDGK —Advices nazims, other officials to go to the hospital for their mental checkups

By Saleem Chandio and Bachal Chandio
KARACHI: Sindh Local Government’s Minister, Agha Siraj Khan Durrani on Tuesday strongly criticized the City Nazim, Syed Musafa Kamal and said that the City Government had no power to interfere in the affairs of the Karachi Building Control Authority.
He was speaking on a point of order in reference to a statement of the City Nazim and City Government’s announcement of canceling the building plans approved by the KBCA during the past six months.
Referring to a TV interview of the City Nazim, the Local Government Minister said, amidst slogans of shame-shame, that he had no authority to come live on TV and utter abuses.
He said that if they had any problems, they should come and discuss the same with them.
He said that they were pursuing a policy of reconciliation and it was the kindness of President Asif Ali Zardari that funds were being provided to them. He said that he neither dictates anyone nor takes dictation from anyone but would do whatever he felt to be right.
He said that the Nazims were making illegal appointments and using funds illegally and he could not sit silent on that. He said that the government gives funds to the defunct KMC and city Government and when they did not get funds, they start raising hue and cry.
He advised them to go to some hospital where they could get their mental checkup and get themselves treated there. (RT)
