The PML-N has appointed former FIA director general Bashir Memon as president of its Sindh chapter, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

As Nawaz Sharif wanted a strong organisation for developing strong roots in the province by attracting voters in both rural and urban areas, Shah Muhammad Shah was appointed as the vice-president of the party in the province, said a notification issued by the PML-N on Tuesday.

The development comes on a day when an MQM delegation led by its convenor Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui and comprising Dr Farooq Sattar and Mustafa Kamal held meaningful consultations with Nawaz Sharif and other top PML-N leaders in Lahore.

Soon after joining the party in September, Bashir Memon was the first PML-N leader to say in public that the party would opt for election alliance with the MQM and the JUI-F in Sindh.

Memon rose to prominence by revealing, when the PTI was in power, that the then prime minister Imran Khan had personally asked him to file fabricated cases against Maryam Nawaz and Khawaja Asif at a time when the PML-N leaders and workers were being targeted ruthlessly. However, he refused to obey the directions.
