BNP-Mengal decides against attending opposition’s APC
ISLAMABAD: The Balochistan National Party-Mengal (BNP-Mengal) has decided to not attend the All Parties Conference (APC) of the opposition.
The APC is currently underway which is being hosted by Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam leader Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman in Islamabad.
Sources informed ARY News that BNP-M’s chief Akhtar Mengal has intimated Fazl in writing about the decision of not participating in the conference, citing the reason that the opposition should first seriously consider the demands of his party.
“Our suggestions should be reviewed in the APC,” he said.
It worth noting that Jamaat-e-Islami and Muttahida Quami Movement – Pakistan have also refused to attend the opposition’s APC.
Earlier today, a delegation of BNP-M lead by Akhtar Mengal met Prime Minister Imran Khan. Defense Minister Pervez Khattak, Deputy Speaker Muhammad Qasim Khan, Adviser on Establishment Mohammad Shehzad Arbab and Special Assistant Nadeem Afzal Chan were also present on the occasion.
