Karachi: Tensions erupt inside Pakistan Peoples Party over the joining of Irfanullah Marwat, the former Sindh cabinet member and Son in law of former President Ghulam Ishaq Khan. Marwat was accused of raping Veena Hayat in 1991 for her links with Bhutto’s.
Sources from Pakistan Peoples Party told Sindh Post that the leadership has welcomed Mr. Marwat in the party upon his request, but many members including the children of Benazir Bhutto not happy with this move.
PPP President Asif Ali Zardari’s elder daughter Bakhtawar Bhutto has commented through her tweet on the issue on Saturday. Her Tweet reads ” Sick man should be rotting in a jail cell somewhere not coming anywhere near PPP. Party that was led by a woman will not tolerate such ppl.”
The elder sister was not alone to criticize Marwat’s Joining, she was accompanied by Asifa Bhutto who also strongly opposed the old rival through her tweets which reads “Mr Irfanullah Marwat should not be in #PPP 1 of the core PPP values is respect for women! His repulsive&illegal actions are reprehensible”
Veena Hayat khan was close friend of Benazir Bhutto and she was only gang raped to hurt Benazir, a senior leader on the condition of not quoting his name said, if BB was alive these people would never come near the party. It seems that the leadership is afraid of losing key people from the party and making such decisions to psychologically play with the insiders mind who don’t agree to Zardari.
Recently Sardar Nabil Gabol has also joined back Pakistan Peoples Party and few more feuds are expected join hands with Zardari.
