PPP has decided to suspend the basic membership of the party’s founding member and former federal minister Aitzaz Ahsan over his controversial statement. Aitzaz Ahsan — the PPP’s legal wizard and a member of the party’s central executive committee (CEC) — has been in the headlines since he made some statements that angered the party leadership. The top leadership of the party has distanced itself from the statement.
The sources said that PPP Punjab’s Executive Committee will meet today to discuss the issue and send its recommendations to the secretary general.
“A resolution will be adopted in today’s session against Aitzaz Ahsan’s remarks and a show-cause notice will be served on him,” the party insiders shared, adding the decision has been taken on PPP Co-chairman Asif Zardari’s instructions.
