ISLAMABAD   -  Newly appointed Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Sindh Affairs Arbab Ghulam Rahim said he has been tasked by the Prime Minister Imran Khan with reactivating Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) in Sindh and increasing its vote bank.

Talking exclusively to the Nation, former Sindh chief minister Arbab Ghulam Rahim, who has vast experience of handling the political matters of the province, said the PTI will be a major political force in Sindh in the days to come.

“There are people, particularly youth, who want to join the PTI and we will provide them space,” Arbab Ghulam Rahim said.

Arbab Ghulam Rahim said he has also been given additional responsibility of Provincial Coordinator of PTI in Sindh for which he has started his role. Mr Rahim said he has invited Prime Minister Imran Khan to visit Sindh as part of mass contact campaign, adding that the PM has accepted the invitation. Arbab Ghulam Rahim strongly criticised the 18th constitutional amendment and said this amendment has weakened the federation’s role in development issues. “In fact, writ of the federal government after the 18th amendment has been compromised,” Arbab Ghulam Rahim said.

Talking about challenges of his new responsibilities, Arbab Ghulam Rahim said the biggest challenge will be from the political mafia and breaking the status quo in interior Sindh. He said Sindh is full of mafias and that is why they will not accept the entry of PTI into the system. “Security will be our biggest challenge,” said Mr Rahim and vowed not to give up struggle despite threats.
