LAHORE: Former federal minister Qamar-uz-Zaman Kaira has been appointed as President of the Pakistan People’s Punjab in Central Punjab.
The decision was made during a meeting the provincial coordination committee chaired by Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari.
PPP leader Jamil Soomro made the announcement and said that Nadeem Afzal Chan has been appointed as the General Secretary and Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar as Information Secretary.
Qaira, addressing the media after the appointment, thanked the party leadership for the responsibility. He vowed to fulfill his responsibilities diligently with consultation of all party stakeholders.
He said that PPP was a reality rather a tradition whereas other parties have risen and fell with the passage of time. He vowed that the PPP will re-emerge in Punjab with full force and vigour, and the party will overcome the tough times being faced.
Qaira said that no other party does the round of consultations as the PPP. He confirmed that consultations are underway for other party office-bearers at district level.
