Mr. Wahidi said that alliance of Allama Sajid Naqvi-led party brought the PPP and the PMLN to power in 1990s. He said that when Allama Naqvi-led party opposed any government that could continue their rule. He said that Shia Muslims are an unavoidable reality in Pakistan.
He said that appointment of Deedar Ali as minister was first step and the PPP would take more steps to act upon the accord with Islami Tehrik gradually.
