Chief of VoS Sikander Chandio, Amjad Chandio, Salim Sindhi and others while addressing the participants said that over 70 nationalist workers had been subjected to enforced disappearances in Sindh who belonged to various areas of the province, adding their offence was only that they were lovers of Sindh and they always kept on talking against injustices committed with the land and people of Sindh.

They said Sindh had constantly been pushed to the wall since last 70 years and its natural resources, water, gas and islands were being forcibly occupied by the Centre which could not be tolerated. They said young men were taken away from their homes in front of their sisters and mothers which could only be termed cruelty to create panic among their families and they had not yet been released since years.

They said that peaceful attendants of Sindh Sabha Long March were attacked by Ubauro police, women participants were not only chained but dragged and shifted to police stations which was inhuman act in a democratically elected government. They said cases were registered against Inam Abbasi and others which they strongly condemned and demanded withdrawal of concocted FIRs.

They also demanded of relevant higher authorities, human rights bodies and other concerned officials to take notice of missing persons of Sindh or else, they added, their struggle will continue till their recovery.
