ISLAMBAD: Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) failed to persuade Jamiat Ulema-e- Islam-F (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman on the matter of caretaker Prime Minister, DawnNews reported on Sunday.

The PML-N delegation comprising Raja Zaffarul Haq and Senator Ishaq Dar called on Fazlur Rehman on Sunday, March 17. Fazl showed reservations on the withdrawal of Justice (retired) Mian Shakirullah Jan’s name from the caretaker PMs list and said that PML-N had not consulted him over this.

Fazl said that Shakirullah Jan’s name should have been included in the list. PML-N leaders said that his name was withdrawn over a misunderstanding, adding that they would apprise him (Fazl) after consultation with party leadership
