Mumtaz Bhutto breathed his last in Karachi on Sunday after a protracted illness. He was 88.

Mumtaz Bhutto’s body will be shifted from Karachi to Larkana for burial early in the morning on Monday.

He was a cousin and close aide of PPP founder Zulfikar Ali Bhutto who later parted ways with the PPP to form his own party the Sindh National Front (SNF) in 1989. He has served as both chief minister and governor of Sindh.

He was also the Federal Minister for Railway Communications and Shipping Corporation. 

Prior to the 2013 general elections, Bhutto had merged his party with PML-N and contested the elections under the latter's banner. Soon after, however, he developed differences with the PML-N and in 2017, joined the PTI.
