The meeting between the two sides held at the Prime Minister Office (PMO), where the Tareen-led group of lawmakers conveyed their reservations regarding cases against Jahangir Tareen.

Meanwhile, an inside story regarding the meeting revealed that the PTI lawmakers led by Jahangir Tareen demanded the prime minister to form a judicial commission to probe cases against Tareen.
