Pakistan Muslim League-Functional (PML-F) has threatened to walk out of the coalition government if Pakistan Peoples Party leadership does not visit Kingri House to apologise to Pir Pagara Sibghatullah Shah Rashdi for its members passing derogatory remarks about Shah Mardan Shah, the late Pir Pagara.
The leaders of PML-F met at the Kingri House on Monday night and Senator Muzaffar Ali Shah Ali and Imtiaz Shaikh briefed the media. They said that the PPP leaders have always criticised PML-F MPAs in the sessions of Sindh Assembly whenever they raised issues of public interest.
“Our members will continue the boycott of Sindh Assembly sessions and ministers will not work until PPP leaders come and apologise for their remarks.”
PPP’s Shazia Marri had called Shah Mardan Shah a GHQ agent. Although Marri later apologised for her remarks but the PML-F haven’t pardoned her yet.
