A leader of the PDM Shah Owais Noorani, met with President Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz Shehbaz Sharif at the latter’s residence in Lahore. Noorani said that he had an hour and a half long meeting with president PML-N, during which they discussed current and administrative issues confronting Pakistan.
He said they both agreed to the fact that free and fair elections were the need of the hour, for which the opposition was ready to hold consultation with other opposition parties.
However when asked if this open door policy would allow PDM to start engaging Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and Awami National Party (ANP) on the shared agenda of taking down Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), he said that for ensuring free and fair elections, they were open to consultation.
He said that the next plan of action for PDM would be devised in the upcoming huddle on 11 November adding that the said meeting is being hosted by PML-N in Islamabad.
He stated that the agenda of the meeting would be published in the coming day or two but the main purpose of the huddle would be to chalk out its next plan of action.
According to media reports, Shehbaz Sharif talking to Noorani at his residence said that the nation has high expectations from PDM. Shehbaz said that the people are fed up of inflation and PDM will become the voice of the nation adding that PDM is playing a historic role under Maulana Fazl Ur Rehman.
Shehbaz Sharif said despite the fact that people are failing to make ends meet, the government is looking helpless due to its incompetence and corruption. Shehbaz appreciated Shah Owais Noorani’s efforts for PDM and thanked him for his hospitality at the PDM Karachi meeting.
