LAHORE : The de facto head of the PPP and former president, Asif Ali Zardari, has convened a meeting of party high-ups at Bilawal House Karachi on Sunday evening (today). He arrived in Karachi on Saturday evening from UAE where he spent around two weeks after celebrating Eidul Azha in Pakistan. Senior party leaders including Sardar Latif Khan Khosa, Raza Rabbani, Qamar Zaman Kaira, Ch Aitzaz Ahsan and Syed Khurshid Shah have been asked to reach Karachi for the meeting. Issues relating to coming local bodies’ elections and party’s organisational matters would come under discussion, according to PPP sources.
Senator Farhatullah Babar told The Nation that Asif Ali Zardari would also be visiting Lahore and Islamabad in the coming days to have meetings with party leaders. He was not sure about the precise dates of PPP leader’s arrival in the two cities.
