PPP Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari on Thursday vowed to take action against opposition senators who defied party policy and voted against a no-confidence motion that was moved by the opposition against Senate Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani.
“We will look into our party to see which of [our members] came under pressure or sold their conscience,” a visibly angry Bilawal told reporters.
“Some petty senators stabbed their parties in the back, we will take them to task,” he said.
PML-N President Shahbaz Sharif also addressed the press and said that the joint opposition will work to “identify those who sold their conscience”. He said that the opposition will lay out a roadmap after an all-party conference.
It is pertinent to mention that PPP was one of the major supporters of Sanjrani’s election as Senate chairman during the upper house’s polls that were held last year. Many observers credited PPP co-Chairperson Asif Ali Zardari for playing a role in
Sanjrani’s victory.
