ISLAMABAD (Web Desk) – Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) vice president Sherry Rehman sought to defend the party co-chairman’s statement, explaining that it was directed against past military dictators in the country.

“People’s Party holds General Raheel Sharif in high esteem, and lauds his role,” she said while talking to media after an Iftar hosted by Zardari. Former information minister and senior PPP leader Qamar Zaman Kaira too backed Zardari, saying the speech reflected the thoughts of every party member.
