SNF is considered as a nationalist party with influence in various parts of Sindh province.
“Mumtaz Bhutto has put forward some conditions for merger with Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz, which was not accepted by PML (N) head,” insiders in both parties revealed.
“PML (N) has to accommodate some of points of SNF’s constitution besides authorizing Bhutto to appoint office-bearers in Sindh; however, PML (N) due to its image as countrywide party rejected to accommodate SNF constitution points into its constitution.”
Mumtaz Bhutto has constitute a committee of its party members to look into the matter.
On the other side, Nawaz Sharif has also set up a committee comprising Senator Pervez Rasheed, Mamnoon Hussain, Saleem Zia, Ghaus Ali Shah and Imdad Chandio to continue talks with the nationalist party.
“Try to steal the chance, Imran Khan has contacted Bhutto and reiterated his offered to merge SNF with PTI,” the insiders said.
A crucial meeting regarding this matter is likely to be held between Khan and Mumtaz Bhutto at the end of this month.
