LAHORE: Senior leader of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Aitzaz Ahsan on Wednesday denied media reports about leaving the party.
While talking to media persons, the PPP bigwig said that all rumours that suggested that he was going to ditch his party were untrue. He clarified that PPP was his family and he could not leave it under any circumstances.
The renowned lawyer asserted that it was not a good sign to leave the party at this age, adding that he was sincere with Bhutto’s party and would remain to serve its ideology.
The 72-year-old politician said that he had no twitter account and social media reports about his next political move were baseless. “I would inform everyone about my official account, once I join the social media,” he asserted.
Talking about former Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, Aitzaz said that he had no advice for the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader as he had to take decisions on his own. Nevertheless, he said that it would be a great loss for PML-N if Nisar was to leave the party.
Nisar had been critical of his party’s policies after the disqualification of Nawaz Sharif. There have been multiple reports about him joining Imran Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), but the lawmaker had yet to decide his future strategy before the general elections.
