When probed about a possible delay in plan, PML-N Information Secretary Senator Mushahidullah Khan insisted on Sunday that there is no change in plans. He added that hardworking and energetic PML-N workers and leaders from Karachi had already arrived in Islamabad. Representatives of other opposition parties are also prepared to participate.
Secretary Mushahidullah said: “The Election Commission is an independent and neutral institution. We will not allow any political party to put pressure on the Election Commission. An independent election commission is necessary for free and fair elections.”
PML-N has sent invitations to all the opposition parties and is still awaiting the response of Jamiat Uelema Islam-Fazal (JUI-F) and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI). On the other hand, Jamaat-e-Islami, Pakistan Muslim League-Functional (PML-F), nationalist parties of Sindh and Balochistan will be fully supporting the sit-in.
