Lahore has once again become a center-stage of opposition-led politics after Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman met Opposition Leader and PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif on Monday while PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari is also expected to visit the city tonight.

Shehbaz Sharif claimed that the masses have not witnessed such miserable governance in the country’s history.
“I have met with Maulana Fazlur Rehman for a devising a way forward for the joint opposition,” he said and announced that they had summoned a meeting of the Rehbar committee to decide the future course of action.
