HYDERABAD:


Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) estranged leader Zulfiqar Mirza’s tirade against the party’s co-chairperson, Asif Zardari, provoked protests by the PPP leaders and workers in several districts on Thursday.


In Badin, which is Mirza’s hometown, unidentified people tore down his posters, which included images of Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and Benazir Bhutto. The supporters of Mirza and his local adversary, PPP MNA Kamal Khan Chang, took to the streets in Badin. Brandishing weapons, both the groups shouted slogans against each other. However, their separate locations prevented a clash.

In a television talk show on Wednesday, Mirza levelled accusations of corruption against Zardari. “He should try to contest elections independently of the PPP platform so that he realises that he is nobody without the PPP,” said Ali Akbar Jamali, the PPP president for the Nawabshah district, at a protest outside the Nawabshah Press Club.

Appearing unfazed by such reaction, Mirza said he will continue his struggle against those ‘making maps of a divided Sindh [a reference attributed to the MQM] and fake leaders of the PPP’.

Khan | 6 years ago | Reply GOD bless him, the only sane voice in Sindh against the corrupt rule of PPP & MQM.
Dr. Saleem Siddiqi | 6 years ago | Reply Mirza should migrate from Badin and live with his so called children in Lyari to whom he had freely distributed weapons which he specifically approved and distributed to them to attack and not to use in weddings when he was Sindh Minister of Interior. He has unstable mind and utter anything to agitate his oppositions. Now he claims that that there is anonymity between Asif Zardari and his Son Bilawal. He further claims that Bilawal is on his side and is opposing his father. Let us see if this matter flares up or died down. Regards Dr. Saleem Siddiqi
