“I am seriously of the mind to join his party. You will soon find out when I will take a final decision,” said Raisani.
Sources allege that Raisani has strategically presented a few conditions to Nawaz and is awaiting a positive response to make the final call. PML-N has been actively collaborating with opposition parties, evidently setting floor for the upcoming elections and much-talked-about caretaker set-up.
“He received an encouraging response from the PML-N leader. Now Raisani is waiting for a reply. There are some technical issues that Raisani wants to resolve before taking a decision,” Raisani’s close ally told the media on the condition of anonymity.
Raisani has a recent history of unresolved clashes with PPP and its officials in the federal government. He officially resigned from party office in 2010 and from the Senate in 2012. Several other political parties including Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf and Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl have made attempts to gain Raisani’s support. Amid the confusion, it is certain that Raisani is not prepared to rejoin PPP.
