In the meeting, both agreed on calling an energy conference to discuss ways and means to overcome energy crisis. The PM ordered the Law Ministry to deal with the 400MW Nindi Pur power project with immediate effect.
The PM said the government was taking concrete steps to overcome energy crisis, and results would start showing soon.
Both also agreed on convening a national education conference. Sources said that Shahbaz and Gilani cleared their chests out and expressed grievances over several issues. The meeting took place in a cordial atmosphere nonetheless.
The meeting comes at a time when the call for new provinces is being propelled by political pundits in Punjab and elsewhere, reportedly with tacit support of the federal government. It is not immediately clear if the two also took up this issue, and if yes, to what dimensions were discussed.
Another report meanwhile said that both agreed to form a two-member committee for transfer of ministries to the provinces.
