Aug 19, 2011: Left and nationalist parties declaration on Sindh Situation

Seven parties of left and nationalist leaning met in Karachi to discuss the prevailing political situation in Sindh and evolve joint strategy to cope with the situation. The meeting was attended by the representatives of Workers Party Pakistan (WPP), Labour Party (LPP), Communist Party of Pakistan (CPP), National Party (NP), Jeay Sindh Mahaz(JSM), Awazmi Party Pakistan (APP) and Watan Dost Inqlabi Party (WIP).

The one-day meeting was hosted by Labour Party Sindh and presided over by veteran leftist Yusuf Masti Khan.  The participants discuss in detail and brief about party position on the situation. The parties have unanimously approved the following points:

  • No compromise on the historic national integrity and oneness of Sindh
  • Sindh is home land of different ethnic, lingual groups and they are part and parcel Sindhi nation, any move to divide the people of ethnic and lingual basis will be resisted.
  • Condemn the interferences of foreign diplomats especially of the USA and British emissary in the affairs of Sindh and their backup and support to armed ethnic outfits instigate them to divide the Sindh on ethnic lines.
  • Condemn the demand to declare Karachi as the Federal capital and consider it the deep rooted conspiracy to separate the city from Sindh again. No to Nazmeen system, considers it breach on provincial autonomy, vehicle to control the district directly from center.
