KARACHI, August 11: Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has nominated Murad Ali Shah, Agha Sirajuddin Durrani and Rehana Leghari as Party’s candidates for the slots of Chief Minister, Speaker and Deputy Speaker of Sindh Assembly at a meeting of PPP Parliamentary Party presided over by him on Saturday.

Former Chief Ministers Syed Qaim Ali Shah, Murad Ali Shah, Faryal Talpur, President PPP Sindh Nisar Ahmed Khuhro, General Secretary Waqar Mehdi and Information Secretary Aajiz Dhamrah were also present on the occasion.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari exhorted the newly-elected MPAs that people have attached high expectations in the Party by electing us third time to govern the province. He asked the Parliamentary party to forget the last 10 years in government and get ready for more transparent and merit-based governance to deliver to the people.
PPP Chairman stressed that issues of water scarcity, improvement in health and education sectors should be the top priorities of the new Sindh government and added that there will be no lifetime Chief Minister or Ministers as he himself will be monitoring the performance of all, including MPAs.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari further said that various puppets were cobbled up together to challenge PPP in Sindh in 2018 elections but they were defeated with the support of people. He said that another group of puppets was being inducted in Federal government but pledged that PPP would expose their hollowness as well and rout them out.
He told the MPAs-elect that you all are my team and I expect best performance from you to revive the glorious past of the Party all over the country.
