Opposition parties put up a grand show at an Iftar-dinner hosted by Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari in the federal capital on Sunday.
This is the first occasion when Bilawal and Maryam Nawaz met face to face as key leaders of their respective parties.
The daughter of three-time prime minister Nawaz Sharif was leading a delegation of PML-N leaders including former premier Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and Punjab Assembly Opposition Leader Hamza Shehbaz.
The PML-N delegation was personally received by the PPP chairman upon its arrival at Bilawal House in Islamabad. Bilawal greeted Maryam and embraced Hamza Shehbaz while Maryam patted him on the back in return.
PPP co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari, Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman, Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) leader Liaquat Baloch, Qaumi Watan Party chairman Aftab Sherpao and Pashtun Tahafuz Movement (PTM) leadership among other prominent politicians attended the dinner.
