Islamabad (Shahid Kazmi – PMLN with allies submitted an application to establish an Independent Group in the Senate of Pakistan. Both PMLN and PPP are now officially against each other regarding future political struggle. Delegation of PMLN and allies met with Chairman Senate, Sadiq Sanjrani and submitted a signed application from 27 Senators to establish a new group in Senate of Pakistan as Independent Group. Sources confirmed that Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif is agreeing with opinion of Maryam Nawaz to not sit with PPP and ANP in Senate of Pakistan.

PPP and ANP both acted against the formula set by PDM that the Leader of the Opposition will be of PMLN. As there was an agreement that in exchange of support in Senate Elections PMLN will get chair of Leader of the Opposition. But against all agreements and promises on the forum of PDM, PPP took a bold step by nominating Syed Yousaf Raza Gillani as Leader of the Opposition in the Senate of Pakistan. ANP also supported the cause of PPP. This move by ANP and PPP really irritated PMLN and other parties of PDM including JUIF.

Top leadership of PMLN, in anger, showed great concerns regarding future plans of PDM with PPP. Mian Nawaz Sharif also termed this unethical move by PPP and ANP as misleading PDM Alliance. Sources confirmed that PMLN leadership is of strong opinion that PPP join hands with the Federal Government and they are also in a deal with ruling powers.

Sources also confirm that some Top Government Officials assured PPP to get support from the Federal Government regarding development projects in Sindh. Also leaders of PPP also denied resigning from parliament which was a major move by PDM. Some N League parliamentarians also express reservations regarding resignations from Parliament. AAZ was asked to stay out of PDM adventures to get fruit out of the current political scenario. AAZ welcomed this offer and separated from PDM.

PMLN supported Syed Yousaf Raza Gillani in the Senate Election from Islamabad seat. With support of PMLN Gillani became Senate in a close clash. Results were unexpectedly in favor of Gillani. Earlier, PMLN was assured by PDM to get the slot of Leader of the Opposition in the Senate of Pakistan as a result of their support to PPP. But once Gillani was elected as senator, PPP revisited his stance and submitted an application for Leader of the Opposition without consent of PDM or PMLN.
