KARACHI: Former chief minister of Sindh Sardar Mumtaz Ali Bhutto passed away on Sunday at the age of 94.

Mumtaz Ali Bhutto, a cousin and close aide of former prime minister and PPP founder Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, passed away at his residence in Karachi.

Bhutto’s Spokesperson Ibrahim Abro said the political personality, who had also served as the governor of Sindh prior to becoming its chief minister, was suffering from an ailment for a while.

His body will be sent to Larkana at 6pm for funeral prayers, revealed his spokesperson.

Bhutto, after developing differences with the PPP, had formed his own party, the Sindh National Front (SNF). In 2017, he announced that the SNF had merged with the PTI.

Earlier, Bhutto had merged the SNF with the PML-N before the 2013 elections. However, both parties parted ways after Bhutto developed differences with the PML-N.

Meanwhile Prime Minister Imran Khan has condoled the demise of former Governor and Chief Minister Sindh Sardar Mumtaz Ali Bhutto.

In a Tweet message, the Prime Minister prayed for the departed soul of Sardar Mumtaz Ali Bhutto.
