KARACHI - Pakistan People's Party's (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari Thursday nominated Sindh Senior Minister Nisar Ahmed Khuhro as President PPP Sindh chapter. The PPP Chief took this decision after long deliberations and consultations with party's senior leaders and Sindh Coordination Committee members.

Khuhro has succeeded Syed Qaim Ali Shah, said a press release here.

Sindh Chief Minister's Adviser on Information Maula Bux Chandio disclosed this at a press conference of PPP Media Cell.

He was flanked by Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah, Sindh Minister for Agriculture Sohail Anwar Sayal, Adviser to CM on Labour Senator Saeed Ghani, Sindh Coordination Committee member Rashid Hussain Rabbani, Waqar Mehdi, Najmi Alam, Zulfiqar Qaimkhani and other PPP leaders.

Chandio said that genuine leaders always take challenging jobs and make historical decisions and likewise PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari dissolved party's organisation and asked all to enter the intra-party elections for becoming position holders in party's organisation.

The intra-party elections within PPP were different from other party's intra-elections as PPP entered a realistic process of intra-party elections while others simply engineered their intra-party elections. He paid rich tribute to former PPP Sindh president and ex-chief minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah for his untiring support. Speaking on the occasion, CM Syed Murad Ali Shah said that though he is a born political worker and associated with PPP but he started taking active participation in politics in 2002 and at that time, Khuhro was the parliamentary leader in Sindh Assembly.

The CM said he had learnt a lot from PPP's two seniors, Syed Qaim Ali Shah and Nisar Ali Khuhro and had great respect for them as his teachers.

He said that 2018 would be the year of general elections and vowed that PPP would sweep the elections with the overwhelming support from the masses.

Addressing the Press Conference, newly elected PPP Sindh Chapter President Nisar Ahmed Khuhro said that as his leader Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has laid huge responsibility on his shoulders by making him as PPP Sindh Chapter President.  He would try his best to reach every single citizen in Karachi and across the province and would work harder to make Karachi a strong PPP constituency once again.

He said that the people of Karachi had rallied under the dynamic leadership of Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on October 16 under "Salam Shuhda" theme.

Since, he is now PPP Sindh President. His prime job would be to bring Karachiites back under the PPP umbrella.
