New Senate Chairman meets Imran, Bilawal


March 14, 2018

ISLAMABAD: Senate Chairman Muhammad Sadiq Sanjrani and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan Tuesday vowed to continue cooperation in future.

The newly-elected Senate chairman met the PTI chief in Banigala. Sanjrani thanked Imran and his party members for supporting Balochistan in the Upper House of Parliament. The PTI chief felicitated Sanjrani and termed his election as Chairman Senate as historical decision in the history of the province. He said that PTI would overcome the discrimination against Balochistan after coming into power. Both leaders also pledged to continue cooperation in the future. During the meeting, Chief Minister of Balochistan Abdul Quddus Bizenjo, PTI leader Assad Umar, Faisal Javed and Aun Chaudhry were also present. Sadiq Sanjrani and Balochistan CM Abdul Quddus Bizenjo along with a delegation of leaders also called on Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari at Zardari House and thanked him for his party’s mammoth support in Senate chairman election. “Strongly condemn the attack by PM's son & his bodyguards in Senate gallery on our MNA Hamidul Haq. The Gullu Butt mindset of PML-N is pervasive in PML-N and is damaging to democracy in Pakistan,” wrote Imran on his twitter account. PTI chairman also wrote, “PTI welcomes SC probe into KP government advertisements, where the official policy is that neither the chief minister nor ministers, are allowed to put their pictures on government ads.” In another tweet, Imran said, “We welcome CJ probe into advertisements, where SS was told to return the taxpayers money he spent on personal publicity. Nowhere in the world is taxpayers’ money used so shamelessly for personal publicity as in Pakistan. No wonder people are reluctant to pay their taxes.”
