Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) have decided to increase their contacts on a party level. The former ruling party has launched a movement against rigging in recent general elections.

Asad Qaiser, a PTI central leader, also confirmed that he talked on phone with JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman and wished him a happy Eid ul Fitr.

“We exchanged views on the current political situation and the process of forming a government in our telephonic conversation,” Qaiser said in a statement, adding that both sides agreed on increasing party-level contacts.


The former National Assembly (NA) speaker also spoke about his party’s concerns regarding Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s (PML-N) coalition government with the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) after the February 8 polls, calling for an organised public movement, calling it essential.

The senior politician said that the PTI and the JUI-F have “ideological coordination” regarding the public movement.
