The PTI has decided to increase political pressure on Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah for his resignation after his name was added to the Exit Control List (ECL).
The information minister is expected to head for consultative meetings with leaders of the Grand Democratic Alliance (GDA) and Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) in Karachi, Badin, Sukkur and Larkana on Monday.

He is likely to hold meetings with Pakistan Muslim League-Functional (PML-F) chief Pir Pagara, PTI’s Liaquat Jatoi, Zulfikar Mirza and Quomi Awami Tahreek (QAT) chief Ayaz Latif Palijo and others.
The prime minister a day earlier telephoned PTI MPA Ali Gohar Mahar to discuss the emerging situation in the province. The lawmaker apprised the premier of the political situation and invited him to visit the province.
PM Khan expressed concern over the situation and accepted the invitation to visit Sindh soon. According to a PTI spokesperson, the prime minister will meet key political leaders during his visit to Sindh.
On Saturday, Minister for Information Chaudhry Fawad Hussain discussed the latest political situation in the province with Governor Imran Ismail.
Meanwhile, PTI’s Leader of Opposition in the Sindh Assembly Firdous Shamim Naqvi chaired a consultative meeting with the Grand Democratic Alliance leaders in Karachi to bring a ‘vote of no confidence’ against the chief minister. The alliance’s MPAs also attended the meeting, while the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) did not attend.
Moreover, PTI’s Haleem Adil Sheikh, who was elected as a member of Sindh Assembly from PS-99 (Karachi East-I), has claimed that following the possible arrest of PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari, the party might split into many factions. He disclosed that the party’s 20 MPAs are in contact with him for their possible shift to the PTI.
Sindh Governor Imran Ismail vowed that the PTI would continue to support the accountability process and rule of the law. He rejected the impression that protests or a ‘constitutional war’ could affect the accountability process.
Speaking to the media in Sukkur, he said, “I am not aware of the imposition of Governor’s Rule in Sindh,” he said. He said public representatives should work effectively to implement better policies for the general public. He lamented the PPP’s threats and asked which field it was asking to fight in.
