PTI constitutes three members committee over political talks with government
LAHORE: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on Sunday formed a three-member committee, consisting of Pervaiz Khattak, Ejaz Chaudhry, and Mian Mehmoodur Rasheed, to hold a dialogue with the Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) on the ongoing political crisis in the country.
This move comes after the JI leader Sirajul Haq's initiative to bring the government and opposition closer. Haq had suggested setting up a committee to develop a larger consensus for holding elections in Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and eventually the entire country during his meetings with PTI Chairman Imran Khan and Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif in Lahore.
The PPP has also formed a three-member body to persuade allies in the government, including the PML-N and JUI-F, to hold talks with the PTI on all issues, including elections, to end the ongoing crises.
PPP has constituted a three-member body — comprising Senator Yousuf Raza Gillani, Federal Minister for Commerce Syed Naveed Qamar and PM’s Adviser on Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan Qamar Zaman Kaira — to persuade allies in the government to start the process with the Imran-led party.
