Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari’s daughters are unhappy with their father’s decision where he welcome former Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) provincial lawmaker Irfanullah Marwat into the party.
Both sisters Bakhtawar and Aseefa Bhutto Zardari vented their frustration on Twitter on Saturday, about Marwat that he should not be allowed to join the party. “Mr Irfanullah Marwat should not be in PPP,” tweeted Aseefa. “One of the core PPP values is respect for women! His repulsive and illegal actions are reprehensible,” she said.
Bakhtawar took an even harsher line, tweeting that “the sick man should be rotting in a jail cell somewhere not coming anywhere near PPP.” “A party that was led by a woman will not tolerate such people,” she added. Marwat joined the PPP on Friday after a meeting with Asif Ali Zardari the same day. He has held numerous portfolios in the Sindh government since 1989 in the transport, health, home, education and mines and minerals development ministries. The former PML-N lawmaker was implicated in a rape case in the 1990s, which is why Bakhtawar and Aseefa lashed out at him on the social media.
