Sindhis, Baloch not to live in fear: Palijo


Pakistan Awami Tehreek leader Ayaz Latif Palijo on Sunday said Sindhi and Baloch people will not live in fear from existing threats. “Our differences are with the MQM and its policies and not with the Urdu-speaking people,” Palijo said while addressing a public meeting at Gabol Park, Lyari. He said his party wanted a Pakistan where orders were taken from foreigners. Lambasting the ruling Pakistan People’s Party, he said Abdul Rehman of Lyari was declared a robber and killed while Rehman Malik, who had run away after leaving Benazir Bhutto behind and in danger, was elevated to the position of interior minister. “The ministers had also run away from Karsaz but the people of Lyari did not leave the ground and stayed there for their leader,” Palijo said. “Around 4,000 policemen were deployed to stop today’s rally. We were told that Section 144 was in place,” he added. Lauding the services of Uzair Baloch, the Awami Tehreek leader said he was the man who protected Lyari. Baloch said, “Our fight is with the enemies of Pakistan.”
