The PML-N has announced initiating a grand dialogue with all parties.

Addressing a ceremony on Sunday, MNA-elect Ayaz Sadiq said that PML-N neither wishes to take revenge from anyone nor believes in the idea of throwing political opponents behind bars.

“We will rather try to create softness in hearts. We want to unite hearts for the sake of Pakistan. Saad Rafiq and I will reach out to the leader of each party to invite them for a grand dialogue in the larger interest of the country.”

Sadiq said he would plead before the National Assembly speaker to make all parties sit together and expressed the hope that all parties would join hands for the sake of the country, which can no longer bear the politics of polarisation.

“All possible steps will be taken to steer Pakistan out of its difficulties,” he pledged.
