ISLAMABAD: In a major development, the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari will meet Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) chief Maulana Fazlur Rahman on Monday (tomorrow) to discuss the no-confidence motion against the PTI-led government, well-informed sources have revealed. Sources privy to the matter said that the crucial meeting between the two leaders will be held at Fazl’s residence. Matters related to the no-trust motion against the PTI government, contacts with the government’s allied parties, and the country’s overall political situation will be discussed in the meeting. Following the meeting, a dinner will be hosted by Fazl in honour of Zardari, the sources added. Earlier, PML-N President and Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shahbaz Sharif and PTI’s disgruntled leader Jahangir Khan Tareen had met secretly to discuss ousting of Prime Minister Imran Khan, sources had revealed. The credible source had told The News that the two leaders met a few days ago to discuss the fate of the incumbent government. Tareen, when contacted, did not offer any comment on this critically important meeting in the wake of the Opposition’s announcement to move a no-confidence motion against PM Imran Khan. Without confirming or denying his meeting with Shahbaz Sharif, Jahangir Tareen had said that his group of estranged ruling party MNAs and MPAs had given him the mandate to make any political decision.
