Soomro was a friend of Fatima’s grandfather Zulfikar Ali Bhutto. They discussed the overall political situation of the country and Soomro assured Fatima of all help. When contacted, Soomro said that Fatima had expressed the desire to meet him as well. He said that Fatima Bhutto has the potential to play the role of a leader in politics.
Differences are emerging in the PPP, Soomro said, adding that, only Mumtaz Bhutto can unify the Bhutto family. Pakistan is facing a critical time, he maintained. The leadership of the PPP has been divided, he remarked. PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari is more powerful than Prime Minister Syed Yousaf Raza Gilani. He concluded that Zardari’s political popularity has reduced considerably because President Pervez Musharraf has not been impeached. online
