Sindh’s political landscape ignites as Feb 8 elections draw near

As the countdown to polling day on February 8 begins, Sindh becomes the epicenter of political fervor, with major players and alliances ramping up their campaign efforts across Karachi, Hyderabad, Sukkur, and beyond.

Key figures including Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari, Dr. Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui, Bashir Memon, Hafiz Naeem ur Rehman, and the Grand Democratic Alliance are leading spirited rallies, rallying voters to pledge their support.

Dr. Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui of MQM Pakistan, supported by central leadership including Syed Mustafa Kamal and Dr. Farooq Sattar, presents a manifesto centered on urban development, aiming to address long-standing neglect in Sindh’s urban areas.
