Prime Minister forms committees

PM Khan presided over the high-level meeting.

The meeting discussed the issues raised by parties allied to the government.

In particular, the meeting deliberated upon the process of PTI’s engagement with its allies.

The committees will be chaired by Defence Minister Pervaiz Khattak.

The committee tasked to liaise with MQM and GDA includes Asad Umar, Imran Ismail, Firdous Shamim Naqvi and Haleem Adil Sheikh as its members.

The committee to liaise with PML-Q includes Chaudhary Mohammad Sarwar, Sardar Usman Buzdar and Shafqat Mahmood.

Meanwhile, Pervaiz Khattak, Qasim Suri and Mir Khan Muhammad Jamali will liaise with BAP, BNP and JWP.

Intra-coalition bickering

In Sindh, GDA and MQM have made public their grievances. Although PM Khan has met GDA head Pir Pagaro, MQM feels sidelined.

However, in Punjab, key partner PMLQ of Chaudhry Shujaat and Ch Pervaiz Ilahi has come out with complaints.

Interestingly, Jahangir Tareen had talked to all partners separately and cobbled together a coalition.

Due to that reason, now all partners want him to keep word.
