LAHORE: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said on Thursday that the Pakistan Democratic Movement’s (PDM) decision to support each other’s candidates in Senate polls has turned the political field upside down.
The PPP leader observed this during a press conference held along with Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz, following a meeting of the two party leaders at the Jati Umra in Lahore.
The meeting came as both the opposition parties and ruling government finalised candidates for Senate polls, scheduled to be held in about a week’s time now.
During the meeting, the PPP and PML-N leadership discussed the country’s current political situation as well as the opposition’s anti-government campaign.
The PPP delegation comprised Yousuf Raza Gillani, Makhdoom Ahmed Mehmood, Qamar Zaman Kaira, Chaudhry Manzoor and Hasan Murtuza, while the PML-N leadership comprised Ahsan Iqbal, Pervaiz Rasheed, Murriyam Aurangzeb, Rana Sanaullah and Saad Rafique.
