LAHORE: Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam chief Fazlur Rehman failed to convince Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz supreme leader Nawaz Sharif to attend the All Parties Conference,according to Geo News on Sunday.

The JUI-F chief met the former prime minister at the latter's resident in Jati Umrah as part of his efforts to unite the opposition.

Sources told Geo News that Opposition leader in the Punjab Assembly Hamza Shahbaz and Pervaiz Rashid were  also present in the meeting.

The sources said that purpose of Maulana Fazlur Rehman's visit to Sharif was to persuade the former prime minister to personally attend All Parties Conference (APC) that opposition plans to  hold on October 31.

They said the  maulana insisted that Nawaz Sharif should himself  attend the APC so that political situation could be discussed but the  PMLN leader   didn't agree.

 He, however,  told the cleric  that  a delegation of his party would attend the APC.

Pakistan People's Party leader Asif Ali Zardari has agreed to attend the APC and was also willing to meet Mian Nawaz Sharif. 

But, according to Geo News, Sharif has expressed reservation over a meeting with Zardari.
