ISLAMABAD: Reacting to MQM chief Altaf Hussain's Sunday speech, Pakistan People's Party (PPP) Patron-in-chief Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said there should be no "number 1 or number 2" but only "mother Sindh".
"No50/50, No number 1 or number 2, only Mother Sindh.All men are created equal.All Pakistanis should b treated equally in the eyes of the Law," Bilwal tweeted after Altaf proposed formation of "Sindh 1" for the populace considered as Sindhi by the PPP and "Sindh 2" for rest of the province.
Bilawal also said that the MQM was consulted over delimitation of constituencies in the province. He said that he had got minutes of the meetings, deliberated over delimitation of the constituencies.
He tweeted, "Uncle Altaf, your ppl are lying to u. MQM was consulted 4 delimitation. I have the minutes of the meeting. Shall send you thm." Separately, Sindh Information Minister Sharjeel Memon also said that the PPP had never made any distinction between urban and rural population of Sindh.
Talking to a private TV channel, the provincial minister said he was amazed at the statements of Altaf Hussain. He said there should be discussions on real issues and bringing up non-issues is aimed at diverting attention from the matters of importance.
