We all have chosen this rough and torturous path willfully and wishfully and every testing endures make our resolve hard and strong,” he said.

He extended his fullest cooperation and sincere wishes to the would-be leadership of the organization.
Before conclusion, Shoora unanimously appointed Mohammad Ashraf Sehraie as interim chairman till the party elections to be held later in the year. (KNS)
