Call for PML

April 05, 2005


PESHAWAR, April 4: The provincial chief of ruling Pakistan Muslim League, Salim Saifullah Khan, has called upon the central leadership to reorganize the party in the NWFP. Otherwise, he said, the provincial general council would take a suitable decision on its own. Speaking at a press conference held at his residence on the occasion of the death anniversary of his father, Barrister Khan Saifullah Khan, he said the PML had become weak in the NWFP.

Mr Saifullah said that Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain was a sincere leader but people around him were not devoted.

He demanded that the central leadership should hold party elections in the NWFP and reorganize the party, else members of the provincial council of the PML would take the decision and reorganize the party.

Flanked by PML senior vice-president Nisar Mohammad Khan and other party leaders, Mr Saifullah dispelled the impression of being sidelined and said that he never showed aspiration for any slot in the party.

He said that Benazir Bhutto and Nawaz Sharif should return and play their role in countrys politics. When asked there was any chance of PMLs merger with PML-Nawaz, he said in politics any thing could happen.
