Later sharing the details of his conversation with PML-N supremo on his Twitter account, Bilawal Bhutto said that he talked to Nawaz Sharif some while ago and enquired after his health.
I invited Nawaz Sharif for the opposition-led conference scheduled on September 20, he said adding that both PPP and PML-N would move forward to implement Charter of Democracy signed between the leadership of both parties.
It is pertinent to mention here that a report on Thursday said that top opposition parties seemed to be in disarray over the agenda of the scheduled all parties conference on September 20 after disagreements have emerged over the course of action against the incumbent federal government.
According to sources, the top opposition parties including Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), and Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) have reservations over the agenda of the multi-parties conference.
“All three of them had separate agenda,” they said adding that PPP wants any struggle against the government within the constitutional ambit while PML-N also had reservations over any move against the incumbent regime.
