KARACHI: Ahead of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) rally scheduled for October 18 in Karachi, Sindh Information Minister Sharjeel Memon clarified on Wednesday that his party does not act on anyone’s ‘dictation.’

“We do not do politics on anyone’s instructions nor do we do dharnas on anyone’s dictation,” he said in an apparent criticism of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and the Pakistan Awami Tehreek sit-ins, which have been widely alleged of being ‘scripted.’

Addressing the media, the PPP leader requested PTI chairperson Imran Khan to withdraw his statements against PPP workers and render an unconditional apology.

Earlier, the PTI chairperson had stated that the PPP would not be able to gather supporters at the rally and those who attend it would do so out of compulsion not voluntarily and enthusiastically.

“We cannot give anyone the license to spread a culture of rudeness,” Memon said.

“First, Imran Khan was defaming political leaders and now he’s degrading masses as he sits in an air-conditioned container while the poor sit on the roads,” he added.

Referring to security arrangements for the rally, Memon said the Sindh government provides the same security for all rallies in Sindh.

PPP patron-in-chief Bilawal Bhutto Zardari is set to address supporters at the rally in Karachi on October 18.

“Bilawal Bhutto Zardari is the only ray of hope for this country,” the PPP leader added, confident that a large number of people would turn up at the rally.
