The Pakistan Peoples Party and the Awami National Party have both blamed Maryam Nawaz for the split within the Opposition’s Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) alliance.
Led by Nayyar Hussain Bukhari, a PPP delegation comprising Sherry Rahman, Fazal Karim Kundi and Humayun Khan, who is the PPP provincial president, held talks with the ANP leaders at Wali Bagh on Thursday.
Mian Iftikhar Hussain, Senator Hidayatullah Khan, Aimal Wali Khan and Sardar Hussain Babak represented the ANP in the talks.
During the talk, leaders from both parties said it was the fault of PML-N’s Maryam Nawaz and her “dictatorial” attitude due to which the alliance was teetering.
The PPP delegation, on the other hand, said the party was not subordinate to any other, adding that it will decide in its upcoming meeting of the Central Executive Committee (CEC) whether it wanted to leave the PDM or not.
