Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif assigned two of his close aides on Monday to act swiftly to reconcile the differences among the party leadership in Sindh and Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P), before his visits to those provinces as part of his efforts to bring the ‘electables’ to the party fold.
According to an Express News report, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo took notice of the differences among the party leaders from K-P. He had made his visit to those provinces conditional to the end of those differences.
“Nawaz Sharif has decided not to visit the two provinces until the party’s provincial organisations are fully united,” the report said, adding that he had assigned the task of ending the differences in Sindh to Provincial President Bashir Memon, while Captain (retd) Safdar would contact K-P leaders.
In this regard, the report said that both Memon and Safdar had established contacts with disgruntled leaders of the party. It added that Safdar had also contacted the ‘electables’ in K-P for their joining the PML-N for the upcoming general elections.
