Such meetings do take place. It’s unethical to disclose the names like this. I did the same unethical thing right now. Apologies for that 😬 https://t.co/JUuEfW2OhH

Niazi shared this information in response to a tweet by Interior Minster Ahsan Iqbal, who said that Amir Liaquat had also met Nawaz Sharif in Karachi and requested him to give time for a public meeting. Iqbal added that Hussain called Sharif a true leader of Pakistan, saying “its only hope”.

Dr Aamir Liaquat Hussain, who a few days ago hosted a TV show against PTI Chairman Imran Khan for his marriage during Ida‘at, on Monday joined PTI.
The inclusion of renowned televangelist Aamir Liaquat Hussain in Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf has sent shock waves across the already crumbling political force, with a plethora of ideological supporters bidding farewell to the Imran Khan-led party.
Liaquat’s decision to formally join the party, as he addressed a press conference on Monday alongside Imran Khan, was taken in bad taste by ardent supporters of PTI, who took a strong exception to the development and vented their frustration on social media, with many announcing to part ways with the party.
