The Jamiat Ulema e Islam – Fazl (JUI-F) Senator, Hafiz Hamdullah said Tuesday of the joint opposition alliance that it’s just as alive without the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) as it was with it, after the controversy entailing Qamar Zaman Qaira’s statement.

Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) is functional with or without PPP, Senator Hamdullah said in a press conference Tuesday and noted that it was the PPP that stabbed the alliance in the back.

Hamdullah said the PPP leadership is trying to play on both sides of the fence. They are trying to get two rides in a single ticket.

PPP is opposing the opposition, he said. It was the PPP that prevailed its Senate candidate at the expense of JUI-F’s candidate and still they manage to be critical of the opposition.

However, he said PPP must reach out to the PDM leadership and mend the fences should it want back in the opposition alliance.INP
