LAHORE: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Central Executive Committee (CEC) has recommended continuing its public movement to topple Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI)-led government besides deciding to strongly protest against the rise in inflation.

However, rather than taking out a rally, Bilawal chaired the party’s CEC meeting on the same day he had to take out a rally. Later, a party leader said that January 5 rally had been cancelled for ‘security reasons’.

A session of PPP CEC was underway in Lahore under the chair of Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari till the filing of this report. The session is being attended by Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah, Yousaf Raza Gillani, Raja Pervaiz Ashraf, Maula Bukhsh Chandio, Qaim Ali Shah, Shazia Marri, Nafisa Shah and other central leaders.

Media reports said that a white paper on the PTI government’s performance was presented in the PPP CEC.

It elaborated the dismal performance of the PTI government in providing relief to the nationals. The CEC members also held consultations over the minimum wage of a labourer and prices of gas and urea.
