In response to a question, Mian Iftikhar Hussain informed the media that the ANP had decided to support the PML-N candidate in the upcoming National Assembly constituency, NA-249 Karachi, by-election.
“It was the decision of ANP’s Sindh chapter. Our leaders at the provincial level are empowered to take such decisions,” he went on to add.
Mian Iftikhar Hussain said, “The split in the PDM began with the issuance of the show-cause notice,” it was an insult to ANP and couldn’t be tolerated.
PPP Nayyar Hussain Bukhari on the other hand said that the PPP had proposed Maulana Fazlur Rahman as the PDM head but the JUI-F chief adopted “a step-motherly attitude” towards the PPP.
“PPP is not subordinate to any political party.”
He reaffirmed PPP stance for the “long march” to Islamabad and to use resignations from the assemblies as the last resort to oust the incompetent incumbent government of PTI led by PM Imran Khan.
On the other hand, the PPP has drafted a strongly worded response to the show cause letter of the PDM, which would be discussed in the upcoming CEC meeting on April 11 and PPP CEC committee would decide to quit or continue its political journey on PDM’s platform.
Bilawal will present the response before the CEC which will chose whether it to be sent to the PDM formally or convey the response verbally through a press conference.
