A delegation of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Tuesday met the leaders of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) in Lahore and both the parties claimed while talking to media afterwards that they had a fruitful discussion on political change in Punjab, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
“We have proceeded with the process of consultation. The role of Asif Zardari was appreciated in the meeting,” PML-N leader Attaullah Tarar said.
“All options including the vote of no-confidence were considered during the consultation. There is anxiety among the members of the Punjab Assembly, and they are not in favour of dissolution of the assembly,” he added.
“The parliamentary party of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has been split into different groups. Everyone is of the opinion that the assemblies should complete the constitutional term,” he claimed.
“We want the public mandate not to be cheated and to be respected. We will announce our course of action very soon,” he averred.
“There is also a revision appeal in the Supreme Court. Our case is not heard on time. The speaker case has been pending in the Lahore High Court (LHC) for the past several months,” he regretted.
“It has been decided to speed up our contacts with the MPAs on the treasury benches in Punjab Assembly, and we will tell about further developments in a few days,” he stated.
PPP leader Syed Hassan Murtaza said that the administrative and economic situation in Punjab was bad because of the PTI.
“We want to put the responsibility of the worst situation on their own shoulders and send them home,” he stated.
“How can Pervaiz Elahi dissolve the Punjab Assembly? Pervaiz Elahi betrayed us and backed the PTI because our government was to complete its term,” he deplored.
“If there is any democracy in the country at present, it is because of Asif Zardari,” he stated.
