He said that PPP is popular political party and its popularity graph had never declined. He said that during the period of last 55 years, the PPP leadership had faced challenges with bravery. He said that now the party is fully focused on KP and will not repeat the mistake of past.
He said that PPP is emerging as top popular party of the province as it wants peace and socio-economic uplift through Benazir Income Support Programme (BISP) to address the sense of deprivation of the people.
