The meeting discussed political and governmental issues whereas Punjab Governor Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar said that unfortunately the opposition is unable to tolerate the development and stability of the country but the people of Pakistan stands with the government.

The promises made to the nation will be fulfilled and practical steps are being taken to overcome the problems of inflation and unemployment.
