It is comforting to know that the PML-N and the like-Minded group have shown their willingness to form an alliance at a meeting held at the residence of Senator Salim Saifullah. Both the parties decided to retain their separate identities and evolve a strategy to work together in Parliament. Issues ranging from law and order, to new provinces, to economy were discussed. This alliance hopefully will turn out to be a stepping stone to the unification of all PML factions and making it the party it used to be under the leadership of Quaid-i-Azam who was able to achieve an independent homeland for Muslims. Given the circumstances of the country, a strong opposition is needed, which can only be provided by the PML groups getting united. The bottom line is that if serving Pakistan is the aim, all factions of the party must come under one tent.
