LAHORE-The newly nominated Punjab President of PPP, Rana Aftab has said that he will rejuvenate old PPP guards and re-activate all party cadres to galvanise the party in Punjab. Spelling out his priorities in "Meet the Press" programme of Lahore Press Club (LPC) here on Friday, Rana said he would revamp all allied party wings and infuse new blood into part workers to bring the party at the level where it was during the times of Shaheed Benazir Bhutto. PPP leaders including Ghulam Abbass, Azizur Rehman Chan, Munawar Anjum, Zekria Butt, Sami Ullah Khan and Abdul Qadir Shaheen were present on the occasion along with party workers who gathered at LPC in large number to greet their leader. They also kept chanting slogans during his interaction with the media. Absence of Senior Minister Raja Riaz was conspicuous on the occasion. Aftab said he would re-organise the party cadres and encourage hard working party workers. "I would shun drawing room politics and undertake an extensive tour of entire Punjab to meet party men at the gross roots level", he said and added that he would also approach the old PPP guards to bring them back to the mainstream. Rana said he would set up "Shaheed Bhutto Welfare Fund" to mitigate sufferings of party workers. He said he would arrange the seed money for the fund out of his own pocket, and well-off party leaders would also be asked to contribute in it. The PPP leader said he had no grudge against any body as every worker was dear to him. He said he would restore worker's honour and trust. Rana said that all allied wings of the PPP including women, labour, youth, and student, would be revamped and re-activated, while all dummy organisations would be abolished. He said party slots meant for youth would be occupied only by young energetic people and same formula would apply in respect of other party wings.   He said President Zardari had assigned him a difficult task, but he would try his best to come up to his expectations. The PPP leader said that he would convene a meeting of party's general council soon to take feed back from party men. Replying to a question he said that he would discourage groupings within the party and he himself did not belong to any particular group President.
