ISLAMABAD: The federal government on Wednesday decided to send Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain and Chaudhry Pervez Elahi to meet with chief of the Tehrik-i-Minhajul Quran (TMQ) Dr Tahirul Qadri, DawnNews reported.

The two leaders of the Pakistan Muslim League - Quaid (PML-Q) would be apprising the TMQ chief on the political and economic hazards that may crop up due to the sit-in, sources said.

They would also inform Qadri on the repercussions that may arise if the sit-in does not conclude, DawnNews quoted sources as saying.

Moreover, the PML-Q leaders would assure Qadri and his supporters that if they conclude the sit-in, some of their "legitimate" demands would be met by the government.
