The Jamiat-Ulema-e-Pakistan (JUP) led by Sahibzada Abul Khair Muhammad Zubair has declared his support for Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) in the upcoming elections.
Addressing a press conference in Hyderabad along with PPP candidate for PS-61 and former provincial minister Sharjeel Inam Memon, Zubair announced that his party will back the PPP candidates.
Zubair, who also leads Milli Yakjahti Council, recalled that leader of JUP late Allah Shah Ahmed Noorani had a pivotal road in the enactment of 1973 constitution.
He said Noorani had then supported former prime minister and PPP’s founder Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto in framing the constitution.
He said the prevailing political environment necessitated their alliance with the PPP, adding that they are retiring their candidates in that regard.
Zubair, as a candidate of Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal was elected MNA from City taluka based constituency with the PPP’s backing in 2002. “An eight points agreement has been worked out with the PPP. Subduing the fire of sectarianism tops the list of JUP conditions”, he added.
