Former minister lashes out at former party leadership, says PPP didn't help her in tough time

LAHORE: (Dunya News) – Former federal minister Firdous Ashiq Awan has on Sunday opened up against her party, saying that Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leadership was enjoying partridges with Defence Minister Khawaja Asif when National Accountability Bureau (NAB) was making cases against her, reported Dunya News.

Rumours about the former information minister’s bid to join Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) are aplenty but nothing has yet been announced. However, Awan was furious with the party leadership today when she lashed out at the leadership during an address to the workers’ convention.

Firdous Ashiq Awan said that she’d make her decisions with the consultation of her workers. She said that she had no plans to leave PPP but was offered to join PTI.

On the other hand, a group has also become active inside PTI that is opposing the former federal minister’s joining their party.
