Peoples Party media teams boycott duty.

PESHAWAR -- Members of the Pakistan Peoples Party's media teams in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa have complained about the provincial leadership's disinterest in the party's re-organisation and announced a complete boycott of their respective duties for an indefinite period.

They demanded of party chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari to intervene for corrective measures.

They also complained that they're not even informed about important events.

The PPP's disgruntled members said some well-off office-bearers went to Larkana to show top leaders their presence in important events but the common activists had no option but to stay home.

They called for drastic steps to re-organise the party at grassroots levels and engage dormant workers for the purpose.

Members of the PPP's media teams said they had successfully countered the 'propaganda' of rival political parties, including Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf, but the provincial leadership never encouraged them for their good work. They insisted that most of them lacked financial resources but even then, they did their job diligently.
