PM holds 30-minute long meeting with  Chaudhry brothers

Earlier this week, PM Imran Khan held a short meeting with the Chaudhry brothers of PML-Q as the Opposition targets PTI's allies to topple the incumbent government.

The prime minister's meeting at the Chaudhry brother's residence in Lahore — which was more than 30 minutes long — with PML-Q's top brass, who are allies of the government in Punjab and the Centre, came as he was on a one-day visit to the provincial capital.

Federal Minister for Education Shafqat Mehmood, Energy Minister Hammad Azhar, Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry, Chief Minister Punjab Usman Buzdar, and other PTI leaders had accompanied the prime minister during the meeting.

Apart from former prime minister Chaudhry Shujaat and Speaker Punjab Assembly Pervaiz Elahi, MNA Salik Hussain and Shafay Hussain were also part of the meeting.

During the meeting, the prime minister inquired about Shujaat's health. The former prime minister thanked PM Imran Khan for visiting his house and inquiring about his health.
