PPP involved in “shameful horse-trading”: says Saad


Islamabad, Jan. 26 (TNS): Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) supremo Asif Ali Zardari’s recent meeting with Balochistan’s “puppet” chief minister is the beginning of “shameful horse-trading” for the upcoming Senate elections, said Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader Khawaja Saad Rafique on Friday.

In a series of tweets, Rafique, the federal railways minister and senior party leader, said “the recent change in Balochistan is business in guise of democracy. Zardari harmed democracy just to garner more seats in [the upcoming] Senate elections”.

He was referring to the recent ‘in-house’ removal of PML-N’s Balochistan chief minister Sanaullah Zehri with PML-Quaid’s Abdul Quddus Bizenjo.

On Thursday night, Zardari chaired a meeting at the Sindh CM House as Bizenjo and his cabinet members called on Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah.
