LAHORE: Punjab Caretaker Chief Minister Najam Sethi will meet Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) leaders Nawaz Sharif and Shahbaz Sharif on Thursday (today) and Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan on Friday to hold consultations over the interim setup.

Earlier during the day, Sethi met Jamaat-i-Islami (JI) chief Munawar Hasan and is also expected to meet leaders of PML-Quaid.

Speaking to the media after meeting the JI chief, the caretaker CM outlined his tasks for the day. He said that he has talked to the Election Commission of Pakistan over reshuffle in bureaucracy, which will begin today and end in a week.

The name for a new Inspector General (IG) Police of Punjab will also be decided today, he said.

Sethi also said that he does not want more than 5-6 cabinet members in his setup.

@dasmir: I fully endorse your opinion. Sethi has no business meeting these politicos. Maybe his intentions in meeting them are to lay down the ground rules and reiterate his neutrality and fair-play. But those intentions could be more effectively demonstrated by actions rather than his words. I am, however, bemused by the interesting twist of democracy that once Sethi was imprisoned by Nawaz Sharif and now he will be meeting him as the CM of the Province.

I am still in shock about this whole thing. This level of maturity shown by the political parties is unprecedented.
