The All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) heaped scorn at former president Asif Ali Zardari for accusing former military ruler Pervez Musharraf of conspiring to destabilise the Sindh government, terming it “baseless, irrational and a reflection of PPP’s insecurity.”
APML spokesperson Asia Ishaq said the statement was uncalled for. Pakistan Peoples Party’s government in Sindh did not need any one else to destabilise it, she added.
PPP co-chairman in a press statement on Sunday said, “His party had reasons to believe that Musharraf was hobnobbing with some elements to destabilise his PPP’s government in Sindh.”
She said PPP’s performance in Sindh was abysmal and party leadership is now blaming others just to hide its own weaknesses.
In a statement, Chaudhry Sarfraz Anjum Kahlon, political adviser to Musharraf, described Zardari’s statement as “a strong reflection of the extensive inner frictions within PPP and the party’s failure to meet the basic expectations of Sindhi people.”
Kahlon confirmed that “more than half a dozen leading PPP leaders had approached APML in recent months to discuss solutions to the prevailing national and political conditions.”
