Chairman Tehreek-e-Insaaf, Imran Khan, who had demanded meeting with the Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Army Chief General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, Monday met both leaders ahead of the All Parties Conference.

They discussed the issue of terrorism at length with the prime minister and the army chief. The two leaders gave their proposals to effectively deal with menace of terrorism.

Imran Khan had earlier insisted to meet the army chief and the Prime minister to apprise them of his views how to deal with the issue of terrorism and to initiate talks with the Taliban.

The KPK Chief Minister Pervez Khattak also accompanied Imran Khan during the meeting.

No details had been shared with the media about the exclusive meeting.

PTI sources said Imran informed the two leaders about his plan to talk to the Taliban.

Imran Khan said on Sunday he will present four point agenda in the All Parties Conference that will help restore peace in the country.

He had suggested the government to abandon the US war on terror and hold talks with Taliban.

He said there is a need of Nelson Mandela’s type of reconciliation policies and military action against those militants should be taken who do not come to the negotiation table.

 He said that he wanted to start a dialogue to end terrorism and take Pakistan out of the “US” War on Terror.

 He added that he would suggest that the government adopts a policy of reconciliation in the tribal areas based on the pattern of Nelson Mandela’s policy.

 “We will try to stand united against terrorism because without getting rid of this menace Pakistan cannot progress,” he added.

He said that PTI was taking practical steps for the welfare of labourers and an Accountability Bill was being drafted in KPK. He said big fish involved in corruption would be nabbed under the Accountability Law in K-P-K.
