Answering questions, Maryam said PPP co-executive Asif Ali Zardari during the gathering had asked PML-N and her dad Nawaz Sharif to get back to Pakistan so the opponents could battle together.

In response, she said bringing Nawaz Sharif back will dangerous to giving his life over to killers, adding that neither PML-N heads nor the gathering’s vote bank needed to risk his life.

He said the March 26 rally was organized with resignations. Thus, the PPP mentioned the PDM leadership to give it some time to discuss the new situation because the CEC’s first choice was not for concessions. He told a journalist the gathering would share its position with the PDM soon.
