Separately on Wednesday, the JUI-F and PTI discussed common ground for unified struggle to “protect” the constitution.

JUI-F supremo Maulana Fazlur Rehman claimed: “The parliament has lost its importance and democracy is losing its case while the constitution has expired as it could not provide peace to the common man”.

“We should have one voice on commonality,” hinting that differences between JUI-F and PTI were not less but could be softened.
