PML-J leader Muhammad Ahmad Chattha said that the PTI, the Pakistan Awami Tehrik and other political parties should make joint efforts for solution to the sensitive and public interest issues.

The political party leader said that the PML-N was losing popularity, saying that some elements were raising question whether the rulers would complete the five-year tenure and it was not a good sign for democracy.

He was addressing the party workers during an Iftar dinner hosted by socio-political figure Muhammad Rafiq. He stated that the PML-N and the PPP were supporting each other directly and indirectly. He said that the Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif were responsible for the present situation.

“Aug 14 long march announced by both the parties should not be separate because joint struggle is always much effective and avoid division among the people,” he said. He said that his party had not yet made a decision in this regard. “We are in contact with our political allies,” he said.
