    A COUNCIL WITHOUT REPRESENTATIVE OF COMMUNITY

    Nomination/ Selection of Governor and GB Council has completed by pointing a big and shame question mark on liberal PPP image. This is the result of giving a free hand to CM Syed Mehdi shah by Co- Chair Person who has played a Major role to Keeping away community from GB councile by nominating an illiterate lady, instead of Popular and nationally recognized PPP leadership (Nazir Sabir, Dr Sher Zaman, Brig (Rtd) Hessam ullah Baig etc etc).

    According to different reliable sources CM has been involved in Horse Trading during the election of GB Council. This is a strong appeal from Party High Command to take a special interest in this regard for remedy.
