Pagara vows support for Qureshi


Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) vice-chairman Shah Mehmood Qureshi met Pakistan Muslim League- Functional (PML-F) chief Pir Pagara in Karachi on Saturday where the PML-F chief assured Qureshi of complete support in the upcoming polls.
Qureshi has submitted nomination papers for National Assembly seats from Umar Kot and Tharparkar in Sindh.
Speaking to media personnel after the meeting, Pir Pagara demanded that all defaulters be arrested. He prayed for holding general election on time but also said there was not enough time to scrutinise candidates.
He said Punjab chief secretary had been replaced but the top bureaucrat in Sindh was still in place.
Speaking on the occasion, Qureshi said the rulers were ashamed to stand in the public’s court and added that the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) was not an ideological party anymore. He said the original PPP had been laid to rest in Naudero.
Qureshi said there was no provision in the constitution to allow for a delay in elections.
