Sources told Daily Pakistan that Fazlur Rehman met Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in the PM House on Wednesday where they exchanged views on the overall political situation of the country and MQM resignations.


Rehman briefed the PM on the progress on the matter of MQM resignations and JUI-F Shoora decision.

According to the sources, Fazlur Rehman refused to play the role of mediator on the issue and told the PM about the decision of his party's Shoora that he should not play the role of mediator because no flexibility is being shown by either sides.


The JUI-F cheif said: "Playing the role of mediator in this situation is harmful for party. Therefore, I can not play the role of mediator by violating party policy.
