Sar­dar Rahim quits PML-N, joins PML-F

Pakistan Observer - - SPORTS - IR­FAN ALIGI KARACHI—

Sar­dar Rahim had quit Pak­istan Mus­lim League and joined Pak­istan Mus­lim League Func­tional. He had also filed his nom­i­na­tion pa­pers for con­test­ing the up­com­ing gen­eral elec­tions from two seats of the province in­clud­ing PS-113 and PS-114.

While talk­ing to Pak­istan Observer, Rahim said that he had called on Pir Sa­hab Pa­gara Satur­day morn­ing and with his bless­ing joined the PMLF and filed his nom­i­na­tion pa­pers for con­test­ing the elec­tions from two con­stituen­cies of the province. In re­ply to a ques­tion, he said that he had not to in­form the Pak­istan Mus­lim League Nawaz Chief or any other high-up of the said party about his de­ci­sion. The de­ci­sion of Rahim for part­ing ways with the PMLN and join­ing hands with the PMLF would be quite mean­ing­ful be­cause the two par­ties were al­ready in close al­liance for the elec­tions. Rahim had been abroad for past many years due to dif­fer­ences with the lead­er­ship of the PMLN. Ear­lier, Hafeez Ud­din had al­ready quit the PMLN and joined the Pak­istan Tehreek-e In­saf.
