PPP to hold a crucial meeting in Dubai
19 September, 2015
KARACHI: The PPP is set to hold a crucial meeting in Dubai on Saturday (today) to discuss and formulate its strategy for upcoming local government elections and the anti-corruption drive being run by some federal institutions in Sindh, it emerged on Friday.
A senior PPP leader said the meeting was called by Co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari and it would continue till Sunday. PPP leaders, including former prime ministers Yousuf Raza Gilani and Raja Pervez Ashraf, would attend it.
“The agenda is not known to everyone but obviously the meeting is most likely to discuss the party strategy in the upcoming local government elections and the recent anti-PPP campaign in the name of an anti-corruption drive. Since the co-chairman is in Dubai these days, you would see these kinds of sittings in the near future as well,” he said.
Sources said that senior PPP leaders Faryal Talpur and Taj Haider along with Sindh Home Minister Suhail Anwar Siyal left Karachi for Dubai on Friday evening.
It is the second PPP meeting in Dubai this month.
After the Sept 8 meeting, the PPP came up with a declaration that the policy of reconciliation had damaged it and it would not repeat this mistake in the coming LG polls.
The meeting called it “painful” for the PPP to be declared by some as supporters of terrorists, but it would try to endure repressive actions and continue to struggle in parliament and the courts, the PPP leader said.
