KARACHI: Around 120 political activists and local leaders of Pakistan Muslim League-Functional (PML-F), Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Pakistan Peoples Party-Shaheed Bhutto jumped ship on Friday to join the ruling Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP).
They announced their affiliation with PPP during a press conference at CM House in the presence of Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah and PPP Sindh chapter president Nisar Khuhro. Among others who joined PPP include Pir Sajjad Jan Sarhandi, PML-F vice-president, Amir Abdi, former adviser to the chief minister, former MPA Raees Muzaffar Ali Leghari (all of whom belonged to PML-F) and Agha Shamshad Ali of PML-N.
CM said that people are joining his party because of its popularity among the masses, criticising PML-N and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) for creating a mess in the National Assembly on Thursday.
