KARACHI: Newly-elected Chief Minister of Sindh Murad Ali Shah on Thursday has said that two-third majority of his party was snatched in election 2018.
Addressing the House, Shah thanked the members for trusting him and said that he has followed footsteps of his father who was also Chief Minister of Sindh. He asserted that the country was distributed after the death of Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah.
Bringing change in Pakistan is good, but people forget their history. They should also remember the black era of dictator Zia-ul-Haq, he added.
The minister said that people voted for PPP despite negative propaganda and that Asif Ali Zardari took forward the country by raising slogan of ‘Pakistan Khapay’.
I was criticized for focusing only on urban areas but development can be seen in other parts of Karachi, he continued.
