SNF announces end to merger with PML-N LARKANA: Sardar Mumtaz Ali Bhutto has decided to part ways with the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and revive his own party Sindh National Front(SNF).
SNF chairman Mumtaz Bhutto said in a statement on Tuesday: “We kept our word with the PML-N, but it deviated from its commitment which led us to end merger with it and revive the SNF.”
The SNF’s programme was to move forward in line with the Pakistan Resolution which stood for autonomous and sovereign provinces, he said.
“We had not joined the PML-N for personal gains”, he said and disclosed that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had twice offered him high positions in the government but he (Mumtaz Bhutto) always said ‘no’.
“I always pressed for implementation of the agreement we had inked prior to merging the SNF with the PML-N,” he said.
The PM had made his son Amir Bakhsh Bhutto an adviser with the status of a federal minister, who kept on reminding the rulers to implement the agreement. But he (Amir Bakhsh Bhutto) later desperately left the slot when he was not heard, he said.
