ISLAMABAD: In a development, a delegation of top leadership of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) met Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman on Thursday with the approval of party president Imran Khan.
For years now, Imran has targeted Fazal – and vice versa – and the two are considered arch enemies. Fazal’s party was also part of the coalition government and helped remove Imran from power last year.
Speaking to reporters after the meeting in Islamabad, senior PTI leader Asad Qaiser said, “Everyone including the PTI chairman had approved this meeting.”
“Today, we have come to express our condolences [over the demise of Fazl’s mother-in-law], this is our culture. We did not discuss politics in the meeting,” said Qaiser, a staunch supporter of Imran and former speaker of the National Assembly.
But sources said geo news That during the one-hour long meeting, the political situation of the country and other important issues were also discussed.
Qaiser, Ali Muhammad Khan, Barrister Muhammad Ali Khan Saif and Junar Akbar attended the meeting from PTI’s side.

According to sources close to the development, Fazal, who also heads the multi-party alliance Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), has supported the idea of playing a role in political dialogue between key stakeholders on the suggestion of former senator Muhammad Ali Durrani.
