Former AJK prime minister Barrister Sultan Mehmood Chaudhry is no part of the People's Party since he has been expelled from the party through a due course of action for repeatedly violating the party discipline", declared AJK PP Central Secretary General Ch Latif Akber.

Talking to this correspondent here on Wednesday, Ch Latif Akber, also AJK minister for Finance, Planning & Development and Hydel Power, asserted that Sultan was, in fact, misusing the name of the party (PP) by showing his association with it.

"Barrister Sultan has been expelled from the party and his primary membership of the party has been terminated", he declared. He recalled that a formal show cause notice had been served on the former PM by the party for violating the party discipline. "After he (Sultan) failed to respond to the show cause notice and subsequently he was expelled from the party", he pointed out.

Latif Akber expressed these views in an unequivocal manner vis-à-vis the current status of Barrister Sultan with the PPP, in context of the recent public meeting, Sultan had addressed being chief guest in his capacity as the top PP AJK leader, hosted by Awami Ittehad, comprising political rivals and opponents of the incumbent AJK Prime Minister Ch Abdul Majeed in his (Majeed) ancestral electoral constituency at Chakswari in Mirpur district on Sunday last.
