PPP disowns Zulfiqar Mirza - Sharjeel Memon
KARACHI: Pakistan Peoples Party disowns the party’s estranged leader Zulfiqar Mirza following his tirade against the party’s co-chairperson, Asif Zardari, Sindh Information Minister Sharjeel Inam Memon said on Tuesday
“If Zulfiqar Mirza doesn’t trust the party leadership then the PPP disowns him,” Memon said, while addressing the media in Karachi. “If he has a problem with the party, why doesn’t he return the two party tickets?” Memon questioned.
It all started when Mirza accusations Zardari of corruption in a television talk show.
“He should try to contesting elections independently to realize without the PPP he is nobody,” said Ali Akbar Jamali, the PPP president for the Nawabshah district, at a protest outside the Nawabshah Press Club.
Earlier, PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari tweeted, “The PPP stands united, anyone claiming otherwise and speaking against the leadership is no friend of the party.”
Key Party Leaders left for London to meet chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, following reports of ‘serious’ differences between members of PPP’s leadership in Sindh.
Pakistan Peoples Party Parliamentarian President Makhdoom Amin Fahim, former home minister Dr Zulfiqar Mirza and President of PPP’s Karachi divison Qadir Patel were among other officials who went to London. The three leaders have reportedly had differences with former president Asif Ali Zardari and the party leadership.
“PPP is not the party of a particular person. All of us and our family members have rendered scarifies for it. Bilawal Bhutto Zardari is the real leader of the party and we will meet him soon,” Mirza had said while speaking to media on February 12.
