People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari is scheduled to meet Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif for a luncheon meeting on Saturday (today).
The PPP chairman had accepted the invitation of the PML-N president on Friday. Former president Asif Ali Zardari would also accompany his son Bilawal to the meeting.
According to reports, Shahbaz called Bilawal on Friday and invited him for a luncheon meeting on the instruction of former prime minister Nawaz.
It is learnt that the issues relating to political cooperation between the two parties inside the parliament to the PPP’s long march and anti-government movement will come under discussion during the meeting.
It is expected that PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz and Hamza Shahbaz will also be present during the luncheon meeting.
It may be recalled that the PPP has announced a long march against the PTI government from Karachi to Islamabad on February 27 and the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) has decided to continue with the long march against rising inflation on Pakistan Day on March 23.
Earlier, former president Zardari had rejected the possibility of becoming a part of the anti-government alliance, PDM, saying: “I don’t think that it’s going to happen.”
Zardari had also said that the PDM has marched in the past as well which did not bring down the government.
