ISLAMABAD: Central Secretary Information Dr Shireen Mazari expressed surprise at PPP leader Wattoo’s statement that his party would ‘offer’ Imran Khan premiership in a coalition with PPP.
“Such an absurdity should not be coming from senior PPP leaders who are deliberately playing PML-N’s game of trying to discredit PTI. The understanding between PPP and PML-N continues in yet another form,” Dr Mazari said in a statement issued on Monday.
She added that the PTI had made it categorically clear over and over again that it will never form a coalition with “corrupt, tried and failed family enterprise parties”.
She reminded the media and the public that the PTI will sweep the elections, but if by chance the unexpected happens, it would prefer to play the role of a strong opposition instead of forming a coalition with these parties.
“Mr Wattoo would serve his PPP better by facing the public to see the rout that is in store for his party,” she said.
