Talking to the media outside the residence of Shahbaz Taseer, she said Zulfiqar Mirza resigned from the ministership, Sindh Assembly membership, and party portfolio prior to his press conference.
About party reaction, she said the party would decide on Mirza's press statements on Karachi situation and that Interior Minister Rehman Malik would defend himself at an appropriate occasion regarding the allegations on him.
She said the agenda of Pakistan People's Party (PPP) is consultation with others and believes in political solution through dialogue by taking all stakeholders into confidence.
The minister added, the first priority of the federal government is to restore peace in Karachi.
