PTI's only demand is free, fair general elections, says opposition leader.

HYDERABAD -- Leader of the Opposition in the Sindh Assembly Haleem Adil Shaikh on Friday evening started a whirlwind visit to different areas of Sindh to tell people it was time to come out of their houses and join Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf's Haqeeqi Azadi March to rid the country and nation of their enemies.

He addressed party workers in Hyderabad on Friday night and spoke at press conferences in Mirpurkhas and Umerkot to mobilse the masses.

He said whenever Imran Khan's FIR was investigated, Asif Zardari's name would also come to the fore.

'The Zadari mafia has enslaved people of Sindh, where flood-affected people were crying for help and millions of rupees were devoured through corruption. He said that Sindh needed real freedom the most.

He accused PDM component parties of trying to create a wedge between PTI and the army. Those who remained invisible were, in fact, running this country's affairs, he claimed.

He also referred to the efforts being made to reunite MQM. Regardless of unity of MQM factions, the results would remain zero, he said, adding that PTI...
