As Plan B of the JUI-F protests came into effect on Thursday, the Chaudhry brothers of Gujrat swung into action again, lauding Maulana Fazlur Rehman for having emerged as the "genuine leader of the opposition".
PML-Q president Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain and Punjab Assembly Speaker Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi met the JUI-F chief at the residence of the JUI-F’s Senator Talha Mehmood, but neither side divulged the agenda of the meeting.
Rehman said there was no scheduled agenda of the meeting and both sides had gathered at Mehmood's residence as he had invited them.
"During the Azadi march, the Chaudhry brothers were trying to find out a solution. We have been meeting in the past too and our demand for resignation of the government remains undeterred, while their stance too has not changed," the JUI-F chief said.
He reiterated his claim that the government was weakening and shaking.
"We are still in protest; we represent the sentiment of the people."
However, he praised the PML-Q leaders for their efforts to save democracy in Pakistan.
