KARACHI - Former Sindh home minister Dr Zulfiquar Mirza had crossed all limits and used a very derogatory language against the leadership of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) especially the party’s co-chairman, Asif Ali Zardari.

The allegations Mirza leveled against Zardari were a manifestation of his personal grudges and were in contrast of the political ideology which a true worker should carry along his entire life, said Sharjeel Memon.

Addressing a press conference at PPP Media Cell, Sindh Information, Archives and Local Government Minister Sharjeel Memon said there was nothing new in allegations as the PPP leadership had faced tremendous allegations and hardly any institution had proved any of them.

Memon was flanked by Senator Maula Bux Chandio, MNA Kamal Chang, MNA Shahida Rehmani, Sindh Health Minister Jam Mehtab Hussain Dahar, MPA Mukesh Kumar Chawla, MPA Tariq Masood Arain and MPA Imdad Pitafi.

It was totally against the tradition of Sindh that Dr Mirza had also leveled allegations against Faryal Talpur who had played a vibrant role in solving the issues of the people at the grass-root level and for reorganising the party. “I can also levy allegations against Dr Mirza but the party leadership did not teach us to take revenge but to show tolerance.”

“All the efforts of Dr Mirza of defaming the party and creating division in the PPP had been fully exposed and failed,” he said. Mirza had used very derogative and offensive language against Zardari which was tantamount to stabbing in the back of one who raised Dr Mirza from ground to the heights of political and financial status. He reminded that Dr Mirza had himself admitted the clothes he worn were given to him by Zardari and the latter had also given two tickets to Dr Mirza’s family. From those two tickets, one became the MPA and the other MNA.

Memon said Dr Mirza had also leveled false allegations against a businessman Anwar Majeed who had, after meeting all the prevailing legal aspects, revived some sick units. “Those sick units had incorporated hundreds of jobs and the provincial exchequer received huge sum of money in terms of taxes.” It is very strange that Dr Mirza did not see any sign of irregularities and corruption till he was in the Sindh Cabinet as Home Minister but now at the behest of unidentified certain elements, he was venting his grudges against the PPP leadership and lawmakers.

He was of the opinion that Dr Mirza had tried to dupe the people by posing he had the backing of PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, however, the latest tweet of Bilawal had flushed all of his claims. “Bilawal’s message on Tweeter was a crystal clear answer to Dr Mirza, people of district Badin and the entire PPP.”

He said in fact, Dr Mirza had ruined his position after leveling false allegations and his political career was no more. “He had bitterly violated the party discipline and because of his senseless moves, the PPP had also disowned him,” he added.
