Not just the next mayor of Karachi but the chairmen of the towns to be formed in the city will belong to Pakistan People’s Party as it is all set to secure an overwhelming victory in the upcoming local government elections next month.

The PPP leaders expressed optimism to this effect as they were speaking on Wednesday at a meeting of the People’s Party District East chapter in the city. PPP Sindh President Senator Nisar Ahmed Khuhro chaired the meeting.

Speaking on the occasion, Khuhro said the PPP leadership had been trying to meet the candidates of the party from every district in Karachi who were going to contest the local government election in the city next month.

He said the interaction with the candidates for local government election was being held to know firsthand about their preparations and major issues in their respective constituencies.

He mentioned that PPP was the political party of martyrs whose leadership had always advocated serving the cause of public service in the best possible manner.

PPP Sindh General Secretary Waqar Mehdi said the People’s Party had emerged as a major political force in Karachi He said the PPP’s Sindh government had undertaken a record number of development projects in Karachi in the last four years as never in the history of the city such
developmental activity had taken place earlier.

PPP Karachi Division President Saeed Ghani, who is also Sindh Labour Minister, said the PPP’s candidates in Karachi had got ample time to conduct the election campaign to contest the local government polls in the city.

He said the PPP had adopted the strategy that instead of holding public meetings and rallies public contact drives should be conducted for the local government polls in Karachi.
