KARACHI: The Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) on Sunday called for an end to ethnic politics as it has criticized the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) and PTI for Karachi issues.

Addressing the “Karachi Solidarity” rally, Sindh Education Minister Saeed Ghani said: “Today’s rally is against those whose aim is to divide Sindh.”

The minister said that people of all races were present at the rally and it was a day to pay tribute to the people of Karachi.

Criticizing Prime Minister Imran Khan, he alleged that the Prime Minister was supporting the MQMP’s stand to divide Sindh.

Meanwhile, PPP Sindh president Nisar Ahmad Khorro said that the people who were engaged in the politics of hatred “destroyed generations”.

The PPP leader said that they want to “capture Karachi”, stop dreaming about it. “Stop spreading hatred […] We have no room for racism and sectarianism.

Khahro said the PPP aims to rehabilitate those caught in the weight of inflation under the current government.

The PPP rally came after the recent torrential rains caused severe damage to Karachi’s infrastructure. The Sindh government was severely criticized for handling the civic affairs of the metropolis. He then demanded a grant of Rs 802.39 billion from the Center for projects in Karachi.

Subsequently, Karachi’s Rs. 1,015 billion development package was jointly launched to meet the city’s diverse concerns, from water supply to transportation and solid waste management.
