Social media erupted at the PPP as news spread that the party stalwart Farhatullah Babar has been sidelined by Co-Chairman Asif Asif Ali Zardari after his hard-hitting farewell speech in the Senate.

Twitter users lauded the the veteran politician as being courageous, conscientious and a voice for the voiceless in the upper house of the parliament.

'The man who dared'

'Tragic fall'

'Ideological face of PPP'

'Hard hitting, conscientious and courageous'

'Soft-spoken, right-minded'

'Crossed red lines by speaking for parliamentary supremacy'

'Bravest voice in the parliament'

However, others were quick to point out how the veteran politician had remained quiet over injustices carried out by his party's various stints in power in Sindh and the centre.
