NEW YORK – Pakistan Peoples Party leader and member of the National Assembly Muhammad Ayaz Soomro died at a hospital in Manhattan, New York early Tuesday.
The deceased lawmaker, 59, was suffering from the cardiac ailment and he was in the United States for his treatment.
He was born on December 31st 1958. Soomro became the member of National Assembly after bagging victory from NA-204 (Larkana) in general election in 2013.
Soomro, who was lawyer by profession, was elected as MPA from PS-37 (Larkana) in 2002 and also remained law minister in 2008.
PPP workers and others expressed deep grief over the loss of what they called a seasoned politician.
MNA & former provincial minister Ayaz Soomro passed away. A grass root political worker he was. Worked with him in Assembly & cabinet for several years, shared heated arguments & jokes, always respected each other’s stances. May Allah rest his soul in peace (Ameen) @PPP_Org
