LAHORE (92 News) – Under directions from Prime Minister Imran Khan, Punjab Governor Ch Sarwar called on Punjab Assembly Speaker Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi and Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain at latter’s residence on Monday.
During the meeting, they discussed the strategy to fail to Azadi March to be launched by the opposition.
The Punjab governor also inquired after the health of Ch Shujaat Hussain.
According to sources, the Chaudhry brothers have given valuable suggestions to deal with Azadi march. They also discussed several other issues, including political.
On the other hand, Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) president Shehbaz Sharif again summoned a party session to discuss about their participation in Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-F’s (JUI-F) Azadi March.
According to the sources, the party members, who will attend the meeting, will devise final strategy about their support for JUI-F chief’s anti-government protest.
Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) General Secretary Ahsan Iqbal said that Shehbaz Sharif is expected to meet JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman on October 15.
Meanwhile, the meeting between the PML-N delegation and the JUI-F chief could not make key progress. It said that the PML-N cannot clarify the strategy about where the workers will join anti-government protest Azadi March of Maulana Fazlur Rehman.
Many issues related to the protest in Islamabad will also be consulted again and Fazlur Rehman Maulana also did not seem happy with the reply of the PML-N. The PML-N was also not happy on 500 volunteers instead of 5,000 by call of the JUI-F chief.
A delegation of PML-N handed Fazlur Rehman a letter of former prime minister and PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif.
In the letter, Nawaz Sharif has reiterated his support to the JUI-F chief for Azadi March.
On the occasion, PML-N senior leader Ahsan Iqbal said that Nawaz Sharif has called on all opposition parties to participate in the march. Ahsan Iqbal further said that there is no rift in the ranks of PML-N on the issue of Azadi March and the party is united. He said that the PTI government is spreading disinformation in this regard.
In letter to Shahbaz, Nawaz tells PML-N to ensure Azadi March is a success.
Nawaz requested Rehman, who has called on all parties to join him in the march, to release a “comprehensive programme” regarding the march.
