BAHAWALPUR: A number of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leaders will soon join Pakistan Peoples Party.

This was disclosed by Pakistan People’s Party South Punjab Secretary Information Shaukat Basra while addressing journalists in Bahawalpur the other day.

He said Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz has declared war against the state and is revolting against the judiciary, army, media and other departments.

The country is being governed by murderers and criminals which is a matter of concern, he lamented.

He said Sharif family had plundered billions of rupees and still consider themselves as pious. However, when cases were opened against them, the truth of their corruption transpired. “They are only Sharif by the name but in reality they have looted the whole country,” Basra maintained.

He said, “PML-N always say that democracy is in danger whereas in reality they are the real threat to the sovereignty of the country and democracy.” The PPP leader said that his party will not let PML -N get away with the corruption.

He added that Nawaz Sharif had always ditched his political allies. “He struck a deal with a dictator and fled to Jeddah.” However, PPP had always strived to save democracy by giving sacrifices, he elaborated.

Shaukat Basra said, “PPP will not support PML-N in or outside the Parliament because they are Modi’s friends and are conspiring against the judiciary.”

He said that PPP was the only party whose leadership was sidelined through a non-constitutional way.

“Pakistan People’s Party will make a comeback and win the next general elections. We will form government in federal and provincial assemblies,” he said.
