LAHORE: The leadership of Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf (PTI) met Tehrik-i-Minhajul Quran (TMQ) chief Dr Tahirul Qadri here on Wednesday.

Electoral alliance and reconstitution of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) came under discussion.

Briefing the media, PTI President Javed Hashmi said the stance of his party was similar to that of Qadri's. “We are trying to unite all political parties which want a change,” he said.
