LAHORE-The PPP workers and office-bearers from Lahore criticised partys central Secretary General, Jehangir Badr here on Friday for his years long dissociation from party men and joining them too late in connection with collection of donations for the flood victims. Jehangir Badr had convened this meeting at the residence of PPPs Lahore General Secretary, Akbar Khan, to activate the party workers for raising funds for the flood affectees. According to insiders, when Badr asked party men to set up relief camps in all provincial constituencies, PPPs Lahore women wing President, Faiza Malik told him that he should have raised voice for the flood victims much earlier when they were really in need of help. Now everything has been destroyed and they have started going back to their devastated houses, she said, adding that he (Badr) was seen no where when the party was busy collecting funds for the affectees and despatching truck loads of relief items to the affected areas. Partys Lahore Secretary Information, Azhar Mughal also came down hard on the party secretary general for his long absence from party meetings. He questioned why he (Badr) kept himself disconnected from party men for a long time, especially when they were raising funds for the flood victims in the beginning. Wajid Ali Shah criticised him for writing a book on Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto in English language which he believed was of no benefit to the people in Pakistan having little or no knowledge of a foreign language. PPPs Additional General Secretary, Punjab, Dr. Hasnaat Shah criticised party leadership for not attending funeral prayer of the martyrs of Karbala Gamay Shah blasts. He said Shia community had always supported the PPP, but it was unfortunate that not a single party leader turned up at the funerals. Later, briefing reporters after the meeting, Jehangir Badr said that he had instructed party leaders and workers to set up flood relief camps in all provincial constituencies. Replying to a question, he said Punjab government could not be held responsible for the Lahore blasts.
