SPLGA

We, the undersigned Sindh Diaspora Organizations, Sindh Nationalist Parties and Sindh Civil Society Organizations unequivocally and resoundingly reject the Bill passed by the Sindh Assembly, to give a legal facade to the SPLGO 2012.
It may be remembered that this same forum had twice rejected this and a previous ordinance emanating from the Governor House, which had the same purpose: Administrative, Fiscal and eventual Political Division of Sindh.
