“95% MNAs have also submitted their resignations with the party.
She said that it is an honour for her to attend the death anniversary of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto who sacrificed her life for the country.

PML-N Sindh President Shah Mohammad Shah said that the party would give Maryam Nawaz a warm welcome at the Sukkur Interchange.
Shah said that Maryam will address a workers’ convention in Sukkur at 6pm today and will also hold meetings with party leaders in the city.
On Sunday, December 27, she will visit Larkana to attend the commemoration event of Benazir Bhutto’s death anniversary on the invitation of PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto.
The visit comes as the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) prepares for phase two of its anti-government drive.
