PPP filing application for opposition leader slot in senate deals a severe blow to PDM: Ahsan Iqbal


LAHORE, March 26 (Online): PML-N General Secretary Ahsan Iqbal has said filing of application by PPP on nomination of Syed Yousuf Raza Gillani as opposition leaders in Senate has dealt a blow to PDM.

“ PPP brought their application to the very chairman of Senate whose election they have challenged. If opposition leader of Senate slot was inevitable for PPP they should have told Nawaz Sharif and he would have given this slot to PPP happily”, he said this while addressing a press conference here Friday.

PDM component parties had announced to support Azam Nazir Tarar and 27 senators have announced their support for him, he held.

He underlined that who betrays the PDM in its objectives will have to pay heavy price for it. We will take up the issue of opposition leader in Senate in PDM meeting.

He underscored people want that the musical chair game continuing since 72 years should come to end in the country. PDM is ray of hope for 220 million people of Pakistan.

He stated NAB can take action against those involved in giving statements against the national institutions. NAB should issue notice to Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan for violating SOPs.

He pointed out decision was taken without taking PDM component parties on board, therefore, a severe blow was dealt to PDM. Such dubious transaction is not proper for the transparent politics of PDM objectives to my view, he added. This should not has been done, he observed.
