Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf has said that the PPP led coalition government believes in taking all political and democratic forces with it for the progress, development and welfare of the people of Pakistan.

The Prime Minister was talking to a delegation of BNP (A) led by Federal Minister for National Food Security and Research, Mir Israrullah Zehri who called on him at the PM’s House.

Mir Israrullah Zehri discussed the current political situation in the country and expressed grief over the martyrdom of innocent civilians in the bomb blasts in Karachi.
