PML-N, PTI and MMA join hands in Punjab

LAHORE: The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), Muttahidda Majlis-e-Amal (MMA) and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) will hold joint public meetings in Multan, Lahore and Rawalpindi in February, as part of an anti-government campaign.

The decision on continuing the campaign will be made after the initial rallies. A coordination committee consisting of Raja Ishfaq Sarwar, Inamullah Khan Niazi and Manshaullah Butt of the PML-N, Pir Ejaz Hashmi, Maulana Amjad Khan and Waqas Jaffari of the MMA, and Mian Sajid Pervaiz, Amin Zaki and Umer Sarfaraz Cheema of the PTI will arrange the meetings.

The committee will also meet the Pakistan People’s Party Punjab leadership to ask them to participate in the campaign.

The decision was made in a meeting at the PTI provincial secretariat on Thursday. PML-N Punjab President Sardar Zulfiqar Ali Khan Khosa, Senior Vice President Inamullah Khan Niazi, Jamaat-e-Islami Punjab Ameer Liaqat Baloch, Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl Punjab Ameer Maulana Amjad Khan, PTI Punjab President Ehsan Rasheed and PTI Information Secretary Umer Sarfaraz Cheema attended the meeting.

PTI will hold its own public meeting in Bahawalpur on January 21 before the joint meetings, it was decided. Talking to reporters, Zulfiqar Khosa said he expected all other opposition parties to join the campaign eventually. He said they were focusing on Punjab because it was the largest province and vital for a change in the government.

Liaqat Baloch said the restoration of the 1973 constitution “in its original form”, elections under an interim government and election commission and restoration of the “true democratic system” were the campaign’s objectives. Ehsan Rasheed said the campaign would begin after 10th of Muharram and continue until the objectives were achieved. PTI chief Imran Khan would visit all four provinces in February, Rasheed said, and persuade regional parties to join the movement.

  1. i think that the leader of opposition maulana fazlur rehman and ppp chairperson ms bhutto aer the two most un trustworthy leaders our opposition comprises of . i just dont understand why are they both busy fighting their personal cold war at this moment which is the defining moment of our history …both of them are making a grave mistake at this time

  2. our government is constantly harping on the same string and is shamelessly lying. imran khan was very true to assert that in a country where the rights of a CHIEF JUSTICE OF SUPREME COURT are at stake and in the handsof a general, we can well imagine our own rights and the so called women protection bill which was none otherthan a filthy tactic used by this illegal loathful government to divide the opposition…..i pray that our opposition gets together and mobilise the people to step forward and revolutionize our social and political set ups alike…….independence of judiciary is certainly a very elemetary ingredient of a succesful social and political system…..time is now ripe that our TRUE leaders get together and an interim govt be set up with an independent election commisiion so that free and fair elections are soon held . these elections will then forever decide the fate of this nation which im sure is very bright provided that we get a truely democratically elected government…and an independent judiciary
