A delegation of the PML-N is likely to meet the JUI-F chief in order to apprise him of all the affairs, including the consultation meeting between Bilawal and Shehbaz. Speaking to the media after the meeting, PML-N's Ahsan Iqbal said the incumbent government had become a "threat" to the national security. "As much as this government has isolated the country globally, there is no example of it," he said. "Both the parties understand that it has become inevitable to send this government home." PPP leader Sherry Rehman said the Pakistani nation was passing through a testing time. "The storm of inflation is not dying down, while the government has nothing to do with the people." She said the government would return to the place where it came from. Follow SAMAA English on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram.
