LAHORE: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari met Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) vice president Maryam Nawaz at jati Umran in Raiwind on Sunday to devise a joint strategy for giving a tough time to the government.
Reportedly, both leaders pondered over possibilities of resisting the government and expressed unity to oppose the passing of the budget proposed by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI)-led federal government.
Meanwhile, other senior leaders of both parties, including Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar, Qamar Zaman Kaira, Hasan Murtaza and Chaudhary Manzor from the PPP and Rana Sanaullah, Ayaz Sadiq, former governor Muhammad Zubair, Pervez Rashid and Marriyum Aurangzeb also attended the meeting.
Earlier, the PML-N vice president had extended the invitation during a telephonic conversation to Bilawal.
During a news conference, Bilawal confirmed that he had been invited by Maryam for the meeting,
“Solving the problems of the country is not in the hands of just one party,” Bilawal said.
He added, “So what if you put one family in jail, in fact, put the entire party in jail. We will not come under any pressure.”
Sources said that the two leaders will discuss contemporary political situation following the 2019 budget announced by the government.
In May, the two political leaders met in an Iftar dinner in Islamabad, where leaders from other political parties were also present.
