ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Muslim League-N and a Pakistan Muslim League like-minded-group have decided in principle to form an alliance against the government.

The decision was taken at a meeting held between leaders of the two sides at the residence of Saleem Saifullah in Islamabad. The like-minded-group is a breakaway faction of the PML-Q.

A PML-N delegation comprising Iqbal Zafar Jhagra, Sartaj Aziz, Ishaq Dar met like-minded members Saleem Saifullah, Hamyun Akhtar and Ghaffur Qureshi to seek their support.

The two sides agreed that the like-minded group would not field any candidate against the top leadership of PML-N in the next elections.

Speaking to reporters after the meeting, like-minded-Group members said that a joint strategy will soon be framed to solve all issues between the two parties.

    Good.
    PML-N Should take All those members of Q who’re willing to join them.
    Except the Chaudhry brothers/Raja Brothers/Ameer Muqaam/Mushahid Hussain Syed/Kamil Ali Agha And three or four more of them.
    it will Increase the Strength of their party & Will make sure that PML-Q doesn’t cut the votes of PML-N. Which is very important to defeat PPP in elections otherwise the division of votes will benefit PPP.
