Bilawal Bhutto visits Wali Bagh, consults future politics with ANP leadership

Charsadda: A delegation of the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) led by Bilawal Bhutto on Sunday reached Wali Bagh to offer condolence to Awami National Party (ANP) leadership over the death of Begum Naseem Wali Khan.

The PPP delegation comprises of Syed Murad Ali Shah, Nayyar Bukhari, Sherry Rehman and Farhatullah Babar.

Awami National Party (ANP) leaders Ameer Haider Hoti, Mian Iftikhar, Ghulam Ahmad Bilour and Aimal Wali received the PPP delegation.

The PPP leaders offered condolence to the ANP leadership over the demise of Begum Naseem Wali Khan.

The leaders of two parties also discussed political situation of the country and their future line of action.

The PPP and the ANP agreed to form a new alliance instead of rejoining the opposition alliance Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM). Aimal Wali Khan and Bilawal Bhutto Zardari discussed the new alliance.

The Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) leadership had on Saturday decided to go ahead with the future protest strategy against the Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) government without support of the PPP and the ANP.

“We did not even discuss the PPP and ANP and as they are no longer part of the PDM,” Maulana Fazlur Rehman said while talking to media persons after the PDM meeting, adding that the two parties still have the time to approach the alliance.
