ISLAMABAD: There is resentment within the Pakistan Peoples Party’s (PPP) ranks over its leadership’s decision to form electoral alliances with the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) at the local level despite Imran Khan’s repeated outbursts against PPP leaders during public meetings and news conferences.

Mr Khan’s latest tirade against the PPP came at a public meeting in Chakwal district’s Talagang area on Sunday, where both parties have entered into a seat adjustment for a Punjab Assembly by-election.

But the outburst has angered the PPP leadership so much that some office-bearers now want the party leadership to reverse its decision before polling day.
