Islamabad, 11 March 2021: Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that an old video of Sadiq Sanjrani is allegedly circulating on social media. “No one knows why we voted for Sadiq Sanjrani as Senate chairman. At that time, some of our colleagues from Punjab thought that we cannot be partner in politics with the PML-N. Independent Senator, Sadiq Sanjrani came to my house at that time and asked me to help in getting him elected as Chairman Senate. Sadiq Sanjrani told me that he will join PPP after being elected chairman Senate. Sadiq Sanjrani was ready to take oath on Quran in front of me to join PPP. ”
Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said this while attending a dinner hosted by Senator Islamuddin Sheikh at his residence in Islamabad. Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Central President for Women’s Wing and Member Sindh Assembly Faryal Talpur also attended the dinner. Raja Pervez Ashraf, Farhatullah Babar, Naveed Qamar, Faisal Karim Kundi, Abdul Qadir Patel, Saad Rafique, Latif Khosa, Amjad Afridi, Noman Sheikh and Arsalan Sheikh also attended the dinner. Pakistan Democratic Movement panel members Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani and Abdul Ghafoor Haideri also attended the dinner.
Chairman PPP said that “I forbade Sanjrani from taking oath on Quran and said that his words are trusted, on the basis of which he got support in the Senate; Sadiq Sanjrani did not keep his promise.” Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that government spokespersons are constantly trying to drag institutions into politics by declaring Sadiq Sanjrani as the state’s candidate.
PDM will oppose the puppet government in the Senate tomorrow, Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said. It has been decided that under no circumstances will the chairman and deputy chairman of the Senate be from PTI. It is in the interest of the country to allow politicians to play their positive role. If a PDM panel is elected in the Senate, then Yousuf Raza Gilani and Abdul Ghafoor Haideri will also take care of the senators of opposition political parties, Chairman PPP said.
