KARACHI, Nov 17: President Asif Ali Zardari, who is co-chairperson of the Pakistan People’s Party, on Thursday dissolved the party’s organisational structure in the Karachi division and appointed his trusted lieutenant, Senator Faisal Raza Abdi, new president of the Karachi division.

Mr Abidi replaced Najmi Alam as president while Mir Ismail Brohi replaced Saeed Ghani as general secretary of the party in the metropolis.

Prior to this decision, President Zardari summoned the outgoing president and general secretary and commended their efforts for the party, sources told Dawn.

However it was said that in view of the evolving situation, a change was needed.

The outgoing general secretary of the party in the city, Saeed Ghani, said that he and Najmi Alam had accepted the decision and pledged to continue to work as ordinary workers.

It may be pointed out that in a recent meeting of the party at Bilawal House, President Zardari had directed the provincial chief minister to reshuffle the party structure wherever it was felt that office bearers were not as active as needed.

After the change in the Karachi division, which is an organisational unit of the PPP, further changes in the provincial party leadership were said to be on the cards, the sources said. The changes were being made to mobilise the cadre ahead of the next election, they added.
