LAHORE: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Punjab has recommended the cancellation of former foreign minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi’s party membership, Express 24/7 reported on Thursday.

The move comes after Qureshi’s meeting with Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif.

Party leader in Punjab Raja Riaz has not presented any reason behind the recommendation.

Qureshi has earlier met Sharif at his residence in Raiwind, where he said the PPP alliance with Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) was not logical and he had severe reservations about it.

Qureshi is a member of the PPP Central Executive Committee and did not quit the party after he was dropped from the federal cabinet. The former foreign minister alleges he was dropped from the newly appointed cabinet “over his divergent opinion on the Raymond Davis issue”.

Mirza | 9 years ago | Reply Qureshi turned against the party after he was not awarded his coveted ministry. If he had any principles he should resigned himself before starting his hate campaign against his own party. He went against his own party for personal interests, and made an ugly scene for himself and the party. Why can’t people like him walk away with some honor still intact?
