Sindh Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah on Friday summoned a meeting to discuss the causes of Pakistan People’s Party’s (PPP) defeat in local bodies election in Badin, a private TV channel reported.
Syed Qaim Ali Shah, who is also Sindh president of ruling PPP, held meeting with provincial ministers Nisar Ahmed Khuhro, Syed Murad Ali Shah and Dr Sikandar Mendhro who belong to Badin and remained in the district throughout the party’s election campaign.
In Badin the PPP’s disillusioned group led by former home minister Zulfiqar Mirza posed serious challenge to the ruling party first time in the history of the southern district of Sindh. PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari had also led a rally from Golarchi to Badin in the campaign for the party’s candidates. Despite his impressive rally, rival Mirza Group won all 14 wards of Badin municipal committee.
