Zardari contacts Imran

After refusing to support the government on the 22nd constitutional amendment, PPP co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari on Sunday telephoned PTI chairman Imran Khan to win his support in this regard. A party spokesman in a statement confirmed that both leaders spoke on phone and discussed the possible co-operation between the two parties over the proposed 22nd constitutional amendment.

"Asif Zardari called Imran Khan after agreement between CM Pervez Khattak and PPP to cooperate with each other about the 22nd amendment. The CM Khattak will issue a detailed statement today (Monday)," the statement said.

The sources said that PPP has not only refused to support the govt regarding the bill but has also geared up efforts to motivate other political parties not to support the govt as it will benefit the PML-N.

PTI had hinted to support the govt on the proposed legislation but the recent move of taking the political parties onboard to reject the bill by Zardari, might create trouble for the govt to approve the legislation with 2/3 majority.
