The meeting also saw Mumtaz Bhutto merging his SNF into the PML-N.Sharif further said that Zardari was voted in to power over the death of Benazir Bhutto, adding that, no concrete steps had been taken to apprehend those involved in her killing.Speaking at the meeting, Mumtaz Bhutto said the country’s current rulers had taken “no meaningful steps to arrest those behind the killing of Benazir Bhutto”.

He accused the PPP-led coalition government of corruption and said he and his party would operate under the PML-N flag.
