PPP lambasts PTI, MQM-P for making alliance to change NA opposition leader

KARACHI: The Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) on Friday lambasted the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Muttahida Qaumi Movement-P (MQM-P) for making alliance to change the opposition leader in the National Assembly.

Addressing a press conference following a crucial meeting of the PPP chaired by former president Asif Ali Zardari, the party leaders expressed full confidence on Khursheed Shah as opposition leader and said he was made the opposition leader in the NA with complete agreement of the political parties.

PPP leaders Qamar Zaman Kaira, Chaudhry Manzoor, Nayyar Hussain Bukhari and others were also present on this occasion.

The PPP leaders said whosoever wanted to change the opposition leader, he should fulfill his whim by fulfilling the required numbers.

“PTI and MQM’s allegiance in this regard would be a big example of underhand deal,” they said.

Qamar Zaman Kaira said former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s way of politics was quite baffling as he wanted to interfere in the opposition parties’ affairs as well besides ruling. The same way MQM would do politics, as it supported us and at the same time they were with the government as well, he said.
