  • Zardari to hold meeting with Tahirul Qadri in Lahore today

"After this report, he (Shehbaz) stands condemned".

FOLLOWING a Lahore High Court (LHC) directive to make Justice Baqar Najafi's report - compiled after a judicial inquiry into the 2014 Model Town incident, the Punjab government on Tuesday evening released the report through the website of its public relations directorate.

Speaking to media in Islamabad, Shah said that the party delegation is meeting with the PAT chief on the latter's invitation to Zardari. He said PTI would join PAT's protest not for political gains but to show solidarity with the citizens who fell victim to Punjab government's brutality. "We have no issue in forging an alliance with Dr Sahib, [and] for this we only need his [Qadri's] nod", Zardari remarked. The force which was sent used unlawful means.

The PAT chief alleged the entire operation had been conducted under the supervision of Rana Sanaullah.

On the other hand, Tahirul Qadri stated that murderers and those who planned the massacre have been exposed in the Justice Baqir Najfi commission report.

"Rana Sanaullah should step down and surrender himself to law", he demanded.

The two leaders agreed to bring the people responsible for the Model Town massacre to justice, sources said. PML-Q President Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain, Awami Muslim League chief Sheikh Rashid and Majlise Wahdatul Muslimeen head Raja Nasir Abbas have already assured Qadri of their support.

During a phone call, Khan assured Qadri that PTI would join PAT if it chose to launch protest against government's failure to nab the culprits. Both leaders chose to chalk out a joint strategy in this regard.

The opposition leader said there is nothing new about the meeting and the two parties have been in contact previously too.

Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah rejected the call for his own resignation and that of the chief minister, saying such demands are made every other day.

He said he wanted to assure Qadri that PTI would join him whenever he announced protest against Punjab government over the case.

Even as both the leaders say they've always been on the same page - more specifically about Qadri's stance on 2014 killings in Lahore's Model Town - this unexpected alliance also appears unnatural, keeping the past events in mind.

He reiterated his call for immediate resignation of Punjab CM and law minister, warning of launching a countrywide protest campaign if his demand was not met.
