Zahid Hamid calls on Punjab CM Shehbaz Sharif

Federal Minister of Law Zahid Hamid Sunday called on Chief Minister Punjab Shehbaz Sharif in Lahore and shared views with him on present situation of the country.
The meeting took place as protests continue across the country, following Saturday’s crackdown by the police and paramilitary personnel on Islamabad sit-in staged by a religious group.
Sources informed  that two federal ministers are likely to step down in the next 24 hours.
Protests held in Sindh, Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa have resulted in at least one death and left dozens injured, besides the 250 injuries reported in Islamabad.
The meeting is seen as a significant one since the Punjab CM is believed to be playing an active role in bringing the ongoing situation under control.
