Former Foreign Minister

Former Foreign Minister Qureshi has announced that he will meet PTI Chairman Imran Khan at Khan’s Lahore home in Zaman Park tomorrow (Wednesday) to discuss the current political scenario.The senior leader of the PTI claimed that the party is going through “tough and testing times” because of the government’s crackdown on party members and officials following the May 9 riots.”But don’t lose hope,’sun of justice’ will rise again,” he concluded.After meeting Khan, the former prime minister who was removed from power through a vote of no confidence in April of last year, Qureshi stated that he would update the media on PTI’s next steps.

After the violent demonstrations on May 9, Qureshi, the former foreign minister, was arrested many times.The Rawalpindi Bench of the LHC ruled at a hearing on a petition challenging his detention that Qureshi should no longer be detained under the MPO.The court also ruled that the MPO orders issued by the Rawalpindi deputy commissioner were invalid and ordered the PTI vice chairman’s immediate release without requiring him to post bail.
