Akhtar said that all the party-related issues will be discussed in the proposed meeting which will be attended by both top and second rung leadership.“The basic motive of the party is to follow and accomplish the mission of late Mufti Muhammad Sayeed,” he said. “We will discuss how to take his mission forward. I can’t tell you whether the subject of government formation will be taken up in the meeting but, yes, all the important issues are on the agenda.”
