To consult us which has not happened till date. I have been the Federal Minister for 3 years. The Prime Minister does not consult. The Prime Minister also consults other ministers but why not us? PML-Q leader said that political parties are met only in the assembly, we did not have any meeting with PML-N, Monis Elahi met Bilawal Bhutto on water-related issues, or he met Khurshid Shah yesterday That he has been released from prison.
If the government falls, we will also fall because we are allies. Tariq Bashir Cheema has not opposed a single bill of the government to date.

We also have to make political decisions. We want to give relief to the people because elections are near,” he said
