Two members of the Punjab Assembly from the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Mian Jaleel Ahmed Sharaqpuri and Nishat Ahmad Khan Daha on Sunday (June 30 ) confirmed the meeting with Prime Minister Imran Khan.
MPA Sharaqpuri told the local media that he had not violated the party’s rules by meeting the prime minister. “The Prime Minister has not asked me to join the PTI [Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf],” he added. “I contacted the Punjab chief minister for an appointment with prime minister to inform him about the problems of my constituency.” “Who else should we meet for the resolution of our problem other than the prime minister and chief minister?”
MPA Daha described his meeting with the prime minister as “two politicians getting together”, and maintained that he had no intention of leaving the PML-N. On the other hand four lawmakers including Mian Muhammad Shoaib Awaisi, Faisal Akram Niazi, Mahmoodul Haq and MNA Riaz Hussain Pirzada have denied the meeting.
A crucial meeting between Prime Minister Imran Khan and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s (PML-N) party parliamentarians has created a storm in Pakistani politics, as PTI ministers have claimed that PML-N leaders expressed confidence on PM Khan. This political meeting has created speculations that a forward bloc is being formed in the opposition parties.
