PPP hints at joining hands with JI, rules out alliance with PTI


Sindh Labour Minister Saeed Ghani on Monday hinted that the Pakistan People’s Party might form an alliance with Jamat-e-Islami but ruled out any possibility to join hands with the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf. Speaking during a press conference in Sindh Assembly flanked by other party leaders, Ghani said: “We can hold talks with Jamat-e-Islami but not with the PTI as we have no intention of forming an alliance with them.”

Expressing joy over the party’s recent gains in the local government elections in Hyderabad, the minister said that the PPP will emerge as the biggest party. He added that the party will also win National Assembly and provincial assembly seats in Karachi.

The minister congratulated the JI for performing well in the polls, saying that the party was just a little behind the PPP. “JI and PPP have a clear number of seats,” he added.
