PML-N dissolves provincial body

October 22, 2014

The PML- N has announced disbanding provincial setup of the party and formally appointed Ismail Rahu as President PML-N (Sindh) and Nihal Hashmi as General Secretary. The development reflects further disintegration in the party’s rank and file.
A formal notification for disbanding the provincial setup of the PML-N was issued on Tuesday, informed Ismail Rahu, President PML-N.
Following the resignation of Ghous Ali Shah as president, the PML-N appointed Rahu as President and Nihal Hashmi as General Secretary. Under the new setup Shah Mohammed Shah has been given the slot of Senior Vice President of the party.
Ghous Shah had resigned from the party’s slot in August this year over what he said the callous attitude of the party leadership towards Sindh. His resignation created stir in the party’s rank and file, as many followed the suit and quit their posts.
Ghous Shah’s announcement of forming a forward block in Sindh shook the central leadership, who finally came up with its strategy and formally announced dissolving the old provincial setup and replacing it with the new one.
The PML-N’s Sindh Chapter has faced many ups and down after the general elections last year, with many of the new entrants joining the party and quitting it within months.
Mumtaz Ali Bhutto, who had merged his party with the PML-N, also parted ways along with his son Ameer Bux Bhutto who also resigned from the slot of PM’s adviser.
Liaquat Ali Jatoi, former chief minister Sindh, had already left the party, with all the three former chief ministers, Syed Ghous Ali Shah, Mumtaz Bhutto and Liaquat Jatoi over the “callous” attitude of the party leadership. Similarly, another former chief minister Dr Arbab Ghulam Rahim, who won the elections from Thar and joined PML-N, has adopted wait and see policy and he is likely to part ways with the party any time. — Shamim Bano
