KARACHI: The president’s daughter, Bakhtawar Bhutto Zardari, wanted to visit flood-affected areas in Sindh but has been advised by party workers against it due to security fears.

Participants at the meeting discussed the condition of flood survivors in Sindh and rehabilitation efforts being undertaken. Others present included Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Sindh general secretary Taj Haider and PPP women’s wing president MNA Faryal Talpur.
