Mian Manzoor Ahmed Wattoo underscored the importance of regular contacts between the two parties and both the parties agreed to constitute a Working Group consisting Allama Muhammad Yusuf Awan, President PPP Ulema Wing , Punjab, Allama Nasir Farooqi Provincial President of Sunni Tehreek and Adid Siddique, Deputy Information Secretary, PPP , Punjab as Co-coordinator.
