  • All political parties are mine and I am the governor of all: Tessori.
  • Sindh governor warns against hasty decision-making.
  • Says polls should be conducted in a way that's acceptable to all.


Sindh Governor Kamran Tessori has revealed that he has communicated to former president and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Co-chairperson Asif Ali Zardari that political parties should not indulge in the "blame game".

Speaking to the media in Karachi on Monday during his visit to a school established by a welfare organisation, he highlighted the rising political temperature in the country and said: "All the political parties are mine and I am the governor of all. Parties should stop the blame game."

Warning against hasty decision-making, in light of prevailing economic turmoil, the governor underscored that the upcoming general elections should be conducted in a way that is acceptable to all stakeholders.

During his visit to the school, Tessori also distributed laptops among students and participated in various activities. "I will talk to the Sindh government to provide a grant to this school."

He added that he prays more such schools are established in Sindh.

Tessori's comments came as political parties including PPP, and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) are trading barbs ahead of the February 8 general elections to woo their voters.

PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari has been targeting "aged" politicians, especially PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif, and is also blaming the party for inflation during the Pakistan Democratic Movement’s (PDM) 16-month stint while PML-N has also clapped back at PPP for accusing Nawaz Sharif-led party.

The PPP has also raised concerns about not being provided a level playing field and equal opportunities to contest in the upcoming elections. The party also sought Nawaz's retirement from politics.

Bilawal also claimed that the PML-N intends to roll back the provincial autonomy granted under the 18th Amendment.
