LAHORE/KARACHI: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) have agreed to work together to save the state by taking important decisions, it emerged on Monday.
According to sources, the incident occurred during a telephone conversation between PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif and PPP co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari.
The PPP leader congratulated the PML-N supremo on his return to the country on October 21 after ending four-year self-exile in London.
Sources said both the leaders agreed that all stakeholders will play their role in saving the state.
Leaders of the two major political parties of the country also agreed to take important decisions to provide relief to the people struggling with inflation.
Insiders said a clash between the political heavyweights is likely to happen soon as both have invited each other to hold a meeting.
The talks between the political leaders took place after both the parties directed their workers to start preparations for the general elections to be held on February 8 next year.
Both parties were also coalition partners in the previous Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM)-led government, which was formed after the ouster of former Prime Minister Imran Khan from power.
Meanwhile, Muttahida Qaumi-Movement Pakistan (MQM-P) delegation will also meet Nawaz Sharif tomorrow (Tuesday).
An MQM-P spokesperson said PML-N president Shehbaz Sharif spoke to party convenor Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui and invited him to meet the former prime minister.
The spokesperson said they also discussed the upcoming general elections and the current political situation in the country.
The MQM-P delegation, including Farooq Sattar and Mustafa Kamal, led by Siddiqui, will meet the PML-N supreme leader.
Political activities have intensified across the country after the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) and President Arif Alvi agreed to hold general elections on February 8 following the Supreme Court order in the election delay case.
