ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) has nominated Senator Jahangir Badar as the Leader of the House in Senate, spokesperson to the President Senator Farhatullah Babar said on Friday.

Jahangir Badar is the Secretary General of the PPP and has served as a former Federal Minister and an MNA from NA-120 in the past.

    It has been PPP’s policy to bring in new leaders and not reward tried and tested jiyalas. It is about time that they recognize the leaders and workers who have taken the flogging and jail terms from dictator Zia and his political offsprings.
    If anybody is listening, please bring all the old faces back in the party and not Babar Awan type.
