The PTI vice chairman said Imran Khan took everyone into confidence about his decision during the meeting, adding that the only solution to the country’s problems was holding snap polls.

The former foreign minister went on to say that it s the decision of the government if they wanted to give priority to its own interests over the country by not holding snap elections that could further sick country.

"We want that the process of elections gets completed in Punjab and KP before Ramzan", he added.
