KARACHI: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has kicked off his first ever train march from Karachi to Larkana aiming to give tough time to the contemporary Federal government.
During the march, PPP chairman will address the party stalwarts at 20 train stations. Several goats were slaughtered at the Cantt Station as a good omen before kicking off the march.
PPP leaders along with party workers have gathered in huge numbers to be part of the train march. The train journey, which began from Cantt Station in Karachi will culminate at Larkana on March 27.
Talking to media before the commencement of march, Sindh Minister for Local Government Saeed Ghani said that the train march is on party’s own expense not on government’s.
“We booked the train with our own money, we’ll see what to do with the government if it interferes in our march”, added Ghani.
Provincial Minister Nasir Hussain Shah, who was also present at the scene to support party’s move against PTI-led Government, unravelled that the train march is part of PPP’s preparation for a convention scheduled on April 04.
Further, he alleged government of snatching employment opportunities from the common men and claimed that the government may be toppled if PPP successfully takes its train march to Rawalpindi.
