The public meeting of the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F), which will be led by its chief Fazlur Rehman, in Karachi on Thursday (today) will be a public referendum against the Sindh government.

Sindh JUI-F Secretary General Rashid Mahmood Soomro said this on Wednesday while addressing a press conference at the Karachi Press Club. He was accompanied by other leaders of the party.
