Islamabad: The Pakistan People’s Party has apparently begun playing Sindh card after its Prime Minister Gilani was convicted by the country’s top court for defying Supreme Court of Pakistan, as violent protests were witnessed in parts of Sindh and Southern Punjab on Thursday.
Unknown armed men took to the streets of Badin, Thatta, Nawabsah, Sukkur and some other parts of Sindh and resorted to areal firing, forcing the traders to shut their business.
Unknown miscreants stopped a train in Multan, home to Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani.
According to senior journalist Hamid Mir the strategy of agitation in South Punjab was devised by Mr Gilani.
Police and other law enforcement agencies kept mum over the violent reaction by the PPP activists, which was termed by some senior journalist Sindh and Seraiki cards.
