ISLAMABAD: The government’s negotiating team is expected to meet today (Wednesday) with the Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) in a bid to remove the reservations of allied parties.

The government’s team would be comprised of Defence Minister Pervez Khattak and Jahangir Tareen while the PML-Q delegation comprised of Minister for Housing and Works Tariq Bashir Cheema, Chaudhry Monas Elahi, Chaudhry Salik Hussain and Hussain Elahi.

Chief Minister Punjab Usman Buzdar, Chief Secretary Punjab and IG police Punjab will also be present in the meeting. During the meeting, the issue of alliance and a package of development projects in Punjab will also come under discussion during the meeting.

Tariq Bashir Cheema had revealed while talking to The News that the written agreement was made with chief minister Punjab with signatures of Chaudhry Pervez Elahi and Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar. “So far no consultation was made with us on the decision despite the fact that the Punjab government is intact through our votes,” he said.

He said, “If the wrong decision will be taken then why we opted for the political suicide.” Cheema said that that Chaudhry Monas Elahi was not a candidate for the post of chief minister Punjab but the situation could be changed. “Its our desire that the prime minister should take the decisions for the betterment of the people and country with the consultation of allies,” he said.

He said if lack of confidence persists between the allies then the governments cannot be run. “It’s time to improve the situation as people were fed with the price hike and the government was not delivering,” he said.
