LAHORE: The PML-N has declined PTI’s offer to play a friendly cricket match at the Governor House next month.

The offer was made by Punjab Information Minister Fayyaz Chohan and PPP MPA Ali Haider Gilani at a joint press conference on Thursday.

Mr Chohan claims that PML-N MPA Rana Mashhood was also to join the presser, but could not because of being unwell.

But the N-Leaguer said on Friday that his party would not make any all-is-well- gesture to Imran Khan’s PTI, which had been targeting them all these years.

PML-N spokesperson Azma Bukhari taunted the PPP for showing its readiness to play the friendly match. She said that the PPP had already been playing a friendly match in the assembly and could do so outside the house, but it must not play a double game with its colleagues on the opposition benches.
