The meeting will reportedly discuss security arrangements to prepare for the marches, as well as actions to be taken once the marches reach the capital.

Further, referring to reports that PTI MNAs have handed over their resignations to PTI chief Imran Khan, Nawaz said PTI should complete its term in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
