The Karachi chapter of PTI has upped its arrangements to receive the participants of its 'Huqooq-e-Sindh March,' which will arrive in the city on Sunday.
The marchers will be welcomed at Quaidabad, where the party's top officials will announce the next moves. In addition, at the district level in the city, preparations to greet the marchers are in full swing.
Federal ministers Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Asad Umar and Ali Zaidi were among those who led and participated in the march.
The long march began on February 27 in Ghotki and is now approaching Karachi after going through the province's major cities.
On Friday, PTI Karachi president and MPA Bilal Ghaffar said that the Huqooq-e-Sindh March, which was launched against the "incompetent and corrupt" PPP-led Sindh government, would be welcomed by a large number of people.
“The PPP’s long march towards Islamabad is an official march and the taxpayers' money has been spent on it, but the PTI’s march is mainly to raise the voice of the oppressed people of Sindh whose rights have been abused for the past 15 years,” he said while addressing a press conference at the Insaf Hosue.
Over the last 15 years, he said, the PPP has done nothing to uplift Sindh and its people. The PTI leader asked PPP chief Bilawal Bhutto Zardari to compare Sindh and Punjab, claiming that Punjab's health and education systems were far superior to Sindh's.
He also chastised Karachi Administrator Murtaza Wahab for taking part in the PPP's long march and questioned him about the city's infrastructure.
PTI leaders Saifur Rehman, Akram Cheema, Shehzad Qureshi, Rabia Azfar, and Adiba Hassan also spoke at the press conference.
