LAHORE: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will visit Karachi on August 1, Express News reported.

This will be his first tour of the metropolis since he took office in June. The one-day tour was earlier scheduled for July 31.

PM Nawaz will meet Sindh Governor Dr Ishratul Ebad Khan and Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah, while a meeting with Pakistan Muslim League – Functional’s (PML-F) head Pir Pagara is also a possibility.

The premier will meet his party members during the trip, and listen to their Sindh-related concerns.

The PML-N leadership in Sindh has expressed its reservations over a possible alliance of their party with the MQM.

The recent visit of a PML N delegation, led by Federal Finance Minister Ishaq Dar, to the MQM headquarters Nine Zero has sparked a debate within the PML –N’s provincial leadership.

Federal Information Minister Pervaiz Rashid did however clarify that the PML-N has not yet invited the MQM to join the federal government.

he may like to visit late lady zuhra house to offer condolence who was killed one day before the 11 May. though she was PTI women wing leader but he is PM of Pakistan. however there no chance of visiting 90. he is not armature politician. he also will not give any importance to MQM at his level. he will keep them at federal minister level. what i think .
