National Assembly Speaker Raja Pervaiz Ashraf said Wednesday that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief whip Amir Dogar did not come to meet him today and is now asking for a meeting tomorrow.

A day earlier, Dogar called the National Assembly speaker, saying a PTI delegation wants to meet him. PTI leaders, including Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Parvez Khattak, and other lawmakers, had asked to set a meeting with the NA speaker. 

The speaker welcomed the PTI leaders to meet them and said that dialogues are the only solution in a parliamentary democracy. Speaking with the journalists at the Parliament House, Ashraf said that he reached the assembly office today, contacted Dogar, and called him for the meeting. 

“Dogar told me that some of the PTI leaders wanted to meet me regarding their resignations, however, I told him that I will meet all of them separately and not in groups,” added Ashraf.  The NA speaker further said that the resignations should be written by the lawmakers themselves as per the rules, adding that every member is required to write the resignation with their own hands.
