President Asif Ali Zardari has convened a meeting of PPP Punjab at the president camp office Bilawal House in Karachi today (Friday). After attending a conference in Istanbul, Zardari arrived late Wednesday night in Karachi, where he plans to hold meetings with PPP leaders and government officials to review the political and post-flood situation of the country.
Sources said that the PPP leaders of Punjab will brief the president about the political situation following the two massive rallies organised by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf.
Sources further said that President Zardari will ask the Punjab leadership of the party to form a counter-strategy against the activities of PML-N and other forces in the province.
“There are chances that the president may issue directives to either organise a rally or a public meeting to show their political strength in the province,” party sources said.
The Bilawal House spokesperson said that the president always holds such routine meetings with party officials.
