Imran Khan, Mustafa Kamal expected to meet soon: sources
KARACHI: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan is expected to hold a meeting with Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP) chairman Mustafa Kamal during his four-day stay in Karachi, sources informed ARY News on Thursday.
The duo discussed political situation of the country in a telephonic conversation held on Thursday (today) after the release of Model Town incident report.
According to sources, a meeting is ‘highly’ expected between the two leaders in Karachi as there are possibilities of grand political alliance formation ahead of the general elections in 2018.
Sources further said that the PTI Karachi chapter leader, Faisal Vawda, has been tasked to establish contact with PSP leaders before the meeting between two leaders.
The PTI chief reached Karachi on a four-day visit yesterday (Wednesday).
Addressing a meeting with representatives of Korangi Association of Trade and Industry, Imran Khan echoed the concerns of the business community of the city.
Pointing out the importance of the long-term economic policies, Khan said there has been a dearth of such policies to stabilize the country’s economy.
“The traders are not taken into account as policymakers set aside their proposals,” noted Khan. He said the economy could not flourish until suggestions of the business community were taken on board, resulting in the further rise of both inflation and unemployment.
He said all emerging economies of the world progressed after taking long-term policies into consideration. “Unfortunately, our policymakers have been making policies with an effect lasting months or a couple of years,” he pointed.
The unemployment in the country will only fall if policymakers take into account the suggestions of the business community, opined Khan.
