The prime minister’s meeting at the Chaudhry brother’s residence in Lahore — which was more than 30 minutes long — with PML-Q’s top brass, who are allies of the government in Punjab and the Centre, came as he was on a one-day visit to the provincial capital.

Federal Minister for Education Shafqat Mehmood, Energy Minister Hammad Azhar, Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry, Chief Minister Punjab Usman Buzdar, and other PTI leaders had accompanied the prime minister during the meeting.
