Former president Asif Ali Zardari’s comment about former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s facemask made everyone at the virtual meeting between the two former archrivals laugh out loudly.
During the conversation, Zardari asked Nawaz, “What’s this? You are wearing a mask even in your room!”
Nawaz laughed in response and said it’s fashion. On this, people at Tuesday’s virtual meeting started laughing out loudly.
Speaking on the occasion, Maryam Nawaz congratulated Asif Ali Zardari on the engagement of his daughter Bakhtawar Bhutto Zardari.
Maryam asked the participants at the meeting to leave everything else for now and make the Lahore meeting of the opposition parties successful. She said that success of the anti-government meeting in Lahore on December 13 would pave the way for the future success of the opposition parties. She asked the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) to help the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) fill the Minar-e-Pakistan ground with party workers on December 13.
Maryam said the Lahore public meeting of the opposition parties would help them decide the future course of action – whether they should resign from the assemblies or march on Islamabad. She said that success of the Lahore public meeting would build pressure on the government.
Speaking on the occasion, PML-N patron Nawaz Sharif asked the PDM to start the next phase of the anti-government movement. He said the PDM should start the long march after the public meetings. He asked all PDM member parties to collect resignations from their lawmakers. He said that JUI-F President Fazlur Rehman should submit the resignations to the speaker on the conclusion of the long march.
Leaders of other opposition parties endorsed Nawaz Sharif’s proposals on this occasion.
