PAKISTAN

LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Chief Nawaz Sharif and Jamiat Ulema Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rahman met at Nawaz’s Jati Umra residence today (Sunday) to discuss the all parties conference (APC).

JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rahman reached Nawaz’s residence to convince him to attend the APC scheduled to be held on October 31.

The main agenda to call multi-party conference is to form a grand opposition alliance against Prime Minister Imran Khan-led federal government.

Earlier, Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and its co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari had agreed to attend the APC hosted by Maulana Fazl.

However, PML-N supremo had expressed reservations regarding role of PPP co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari. Sources privy to Punjab-based party told our correspondent that Nawaz is seeking some sort of guarantee from Fazl in this regard.
