ISLAMABAD: Former president Asif Ali Zardari and the JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman Wednesday and agreed to convene a meeting of the opposition parties to agree on minimum agenda to form a grand alliance of opposition against the government inside and outside the Parliament. According to sources, Fazlur Rehman was of the opinion that the government has been exposed and completely failed to deliver and the current political situation requires that all the opposition parties unite on a single platform against the government.
