Marwat denies ‘joining PPP’ rumours


KARACHI: Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) leader Irfanullah Marwat has denied joining the Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP).
His clarification came a day after Aseefa and Bakhtawar, the daughters of former president and co-chairman of PPP Asif Ali Zardari, reacted strongly against the party’s decision to welcome Marwat in the PPP, calling the latter a “sick man.”
