KARACHI - Former Sindh Assembly member Bano Sagheer, who joined the PML-Q in 2002, on Wednesday announced rejoining the PPP with a promise not to quit and will remain loyal with the party.

She was addressing a press conference after meeting with Sindh Senior Minister for Education and PPP leader, Nisar Ahmed Khuhro at his residence here.

Bano was elected as a MPA on reserved seats by the PPP in 2002 but after the formation of the PML-Q government, led by the then chief minister Ali Muhammad Khan Mahar, she committed horse-trading by quitting the PPP and joined the PML-Q government.

Khuhro said senior workers and stalwarts must join the party under the leadership of party’s young chief Bilawal Bhutto Zardari.

The PPP leader said Martial Laws and military rule were not the solution to the problems of Pakistan, besides whoever invites the Army to takeover, he will be liable to be charged under Article 6 of the Constitution after 18th amendment. Commenting on the outcome of the negotiation process, PPP leader believed that the talks between the government and the Taliban would not yield any positive result as militants were still launching attacks on the innocent citizens. He added the government of Pakistan has shown its weaknesses in starting the negotiation process with the militant Taliban.

To a question, PPP leader said the doors of negotiations were always opened for all the parties including the MQM as his party believes in reconciliation policy initiated by slain Benazir Bhutto.
