PPP forms committee to probe decline in its popularity
ISLAMABAD (Web Desk) - The Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) has formed a committee to probe into continuous decline in its popularity and failure in the by-polls.

Talking to the media on Wednesday, Opposition Leader in the National Assembly Khurshid Shah said that the committee would present the report to the party leadership on November 30.

“The PPP will form its future strategy in the light of the report,” he maintained.

Khurshid Shah said that the Kalabagh issue had been closed and the government should not again raise the issue.

He said that the FATA should be given its rights. “The PPP has highlighted the issue at every place. We are hopeful that we will raise our voice in the parliament,” he said.

He said that former president Asif Zardari had written a letter to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. “A constitutional amendment is impossible without the help of all parties.”

Farhatullah Babar said that they could have boycotted the NA-122 by-polls, but they did not do so. “We would have not known our weaknesses had we not participated in the elections,” he added.
