Nawaz Sharif – Gen Raheel Sharif

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will fly this morning from Lahore to Islamabad where he will have a meeting with Chief of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif in a bid to break the ongoing political crisis. The two leaders are not likely to meet overnight.

Army Chief, who on being sought by PM Sharif to jump in between to defuse the impasse, had separate meetings first with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan and then with Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) Chief Dr. Tahir-ul-Qadri.

The two leaders tied their willingness to call off the sit-ins to the fulfillment of their demands. Having returned among the PTI demonstrators, Imran Khan announced to broaden scope of the protest across the country, in case his main demand i.e. the resignation of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, is not met.

It is pertinent to note here that PM Sharif tapped into different tactics involving use of force to contain the protesters; but, participants of Inqilab March and Azadi March, defying all hurdles, roared into the federal capital.

PM Sharif, who will go to Mansehra today to offer condolences at the demise of one of his relatives, is expected to meet PM Sharif during daytime.
