ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and senior party leaders left for London on Wednesday morning to meet PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif.

Federal ministers Ahsan Iqbal, Marriyum Aurangzeb, Miftah Ismail, Khawaja Saad Rafique, Khawaja Asif and Khurram Dastgir accompanied the prime minister who flew in the wee hours of Wednesday on a foreign airline flight. The delegations is expected to remain in London for two to three days.

Ahead of the visit, Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb said that this was a private visit by PML-N leaders to meet their party leader and PM Sharif would also be going with them.

She said the government’s opponents were blowing it out of proportion. She said the delegation would be holding consultations with the elder Sharif, which was an ongoing process and not unusual among political parties.

According to the reports, Nawaz Sharif has to consult the party leadership over some important issue and is expected to make a big decision. Nawaz had also rejected the proposal to have an online meeting.

The meeting is also expected to take decisions regarding power-sharing, the next general elections, and the Punjab cabinet will also be taken. They will discuss a strategy for the prices of petroleum products.

The trip was roundly criticised by PTI chairman Imran Khan, who said in a public meeting o that the entire cabinet was going to meet a ‘corrupt and convicted’ person on taxpayers’ money.
