don’t consider the fact that under the 18th Amendment, funds are being
provided to the whole province.’

He said categorically that the PTI government would invite a third party
to monitor the funds being spent in Sindh. He said a malicious campaign

of royalty and they did not have the political acumen.

He said Imran Khan was a true leader. His policy was very clear whether
it was Afghanistan or Muslim Ummah.

He boasted on the PTI government’s performance saying the economy was
showing signs of improvement. He said that PTI would form the government
in Sindh next time.

that PML-N was being controlled by its vice president Maryam Nawaz and
PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif. He said that opposition was just a
hotchpotch of Nawaz Sharif, Maulana Fazlur Rehman and Bilawal Bhutto
Zardari. DNA
