He said that Prime Minister Imran Khan should sit with the provincial government because this is not the time for politics, it is the time to solve problems. According to Shehbaz Sharif, the country is facing difficult situations so politics should not be done.

He said that people’s assets were submerged due to rains in Karachi. There should be development work in the city. Shehbaz Sharif asked the federation to take part in the relief work in consultation with Sindh.

According to sources, Shehbaz Sharif will meet PPP chief Asif Ali Zardari and Bilawal Bhutto Zardari at 4 pm at Bilawal House. He will also inspect the rain-affected areas and talk to the people to find out their problems.
