Talking to this scribe, PML-N General Secretary Iqbal Zafar Jhagra said the national conference would be held in Karachi next month, however, date and other relevant matters had yet to be finalised at the party level.
“Karachi is very serious issue and its impact is passing through the whole country and with a view to finding a way out in consultation with all political parties and consensus, PML-N President Nawaz Sharif has decided to hold the conference,” Jhagra added.
The PML-N general secretary said his party pursued a policy of meeting anyone and going to any length in the national interest and the same spirit was at work in holding the conference.
The fact that PML-N wanted to take every party on board was vivid from the appointment of the Chief Election Commissioner as the party even consulted with the PTI before finalising the name for this slot, Jhagra further added.
Answering a question on the differences between Pir Sabir Shah and Capt (r) Safdar over the names of party office-bearers of Hazara Division, Jhagra dispelled the impression that the differences were not serious.
He said Nawaz Sharif held a meeting with both the leaders and the situation was now under control.
