The PTI leader said they were also ready to return to the assemblies provided the government formed judicial commission to probe election rigging. He said PTI chief Imran Khan had left for Saudi Arabia to perform Umra. He said Pakistan Awami Tehreek chief Dr Tahirul Qadri would also be there during the same days but ruled out any meeting between them. 

He said as a member of the political Jirga, Rehman Malik was asking the National Assembly speaker not to accept the resignations of PTI parliamentarians while on other hand his party’s speaker in the Sindh Assembly had accepted the resignations of party MPAs. -dawn
