LAHORE, May 25: Former prime minister Mir Zafarullah Khan Jamali joined the PML-N after meeting prime minister-in-waiting Nawaz Sharif in Raiwind on Saturday.

Talking to reporters after the meeting, Mr Jamali said he had joined the PML-N unconditionally.

He said he discussed with Mr Sharif political matters, including possible candidates for the slot of the chief minister of Balochistan.

Mr Jamali said there should be no ‘Balochistan package’ but practical measures should be taken to address the problems of the province.

He said loadshedding was the biggest problem facing the country today.

Meanwhile, the PML-N committee on economic affairs submitted its report to Mr Sharif. It reportedly recommended sale of government land and privatisation of some public sector organisations to enhance revenue.
