They also discussed how the devastating monsoon floods of this year were remedied, as well as how the displaced flood victims were faring as winter approached. According to a formal news statement, “both leaders agreed to speed up the process of rehabilitation of flood-hit individuals.”
Restore PDM in Punjab
The PM has given Mr. Zardari the duty of restoring the Pakistan Democratic Movement’s (PDM) government in Punjab, according to sources in the PPP.
The former president, who is renowned for his capacity to forge political solutions where none appear to exist, is scheduled to visit Lahore soon.
Prior to this meeting, Mr. Zardari had meetings with the Mutahidda Qaumi Movement’s Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui, the head of the Pakistan Muslim League (PML-Q), Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain, and Finance Minister Ishaq Dar, who is thought to be the spokesperson for PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif, who is currently living in exile.
