The Senate chairman held in-depth consultation with premier in this regard as Khan assured Sanjrani of full cooperation.

The premier regretted that self-interested politicians were making last-ditch efforts to inflict loss on democracy and democratic norms.

“Those who recite mantra of democracy should tell nation that what type of democratic norm it is to remove incumbent Senate chairman”, stated the premier.
