Other parties are very weak in Sindh which is not good for the people of Sindh.
The biggest strength of PTI is also its weakness that's Imran Khan,
Imran khan can ask people to vote for him or for the Party for that, he needs to bring new faces to these smaller districts and push for people to vote for them and his party
After This election he shold focus more on building his party and growing new political faces instead of his own seat thats the only way to break this cycle of Nawaz & Zardari family

Not weak, it is all due to Punjab's monopoly in National Assembly, that's why Punjab needs to be divided into 2 or 3. Plus PMLN ruled for so many years, but never went to Sindh because they get the absolute majority locally.

there is no other party in Sindh right now. PTI could have strengthened its position but they are focused on Punjab and PML-N. I don’t even remember the last time PTI big leaders travelled to Interior Sindh or Baluchistan.

Oh bhai. Yeh mukhalifo ko qatal ker sakte hien, gages ker sakte hien, kuchh bhi ker sakte hien. It’s a terror hold in interior Sindh much like what MQM used to have in Karachi 10 years ago.
PPP winning tactics are as follows.
1)Bribe all the opponent's strong candidates and make them sit in favour of PPP.
2)Full use of Teachers, Police and district administration.
3)Manipulate the voters list.
4)Buy the voters.
5)Fund PPP candidates with provincial funds.
6)Use terror and force to intimidate stubborn voters.
7)Keep PPP workers well fed and paid.

Their hold in Sindh compares to poor harries in feudal bondage.

Imran Khan has promised to liberate interior Sindh from Zardari mafia in next general elections. But he can't do shit because interior Sindhis do not want to be liberated.
