“All the Opposition parties to join hands and move forward with the anti-government movement” is the new proposition by the leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shahbaz Sharif, sources told TTI.
This idea was put for further discussion during a dinner hosted by Shahbaz during which Leader of the Opposition in Senate Yousuf Raza Gilani, PPP leader Raja Pervaiz Ashraf, Sherry Rehman, ANP leader Amir Haider Khan Hoti, and other party leaders were present.
Along with other strategies, the overall political situation of the country was also discussed at the dinner, sources said.
On the other hand, PML-N Secretary-General Ahsan Iqbal, while speaking on a talk show said Shahbaz was attempting to “unite the Opposition.”
The government has “manipulated” the economic numbers, Iqbal said, adding the rising inflation had made it difficult for a poor man to make a living. Shahbaz’s reconciliation policy is for the Opposition.
“There can be no reconciliation with the government.”The PML-N leader said that.
The general secretary of PML-N said that PDM will hold a meeting tomorrow and will decide in what capacity PPP can render its services to the Opposition alliance.
“We are happy that all the representatives of Opposition parties attended the dinner today,” Iqbal said, adding that the PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto was surely missed at the dinner.
