PTI leader Mian Mahmoodur Rasheed told Dawn on Sunday.</p> <p>Asked how they could attend an event against their parties??? decisions, Rasheed said what he knew was that PPP and PML-N workers were not satisfied with the postponement of local council polls and their participation in the APC would be a reflection of it.</p> <p>Rasheed said though his party had very low representation in the incumbent local governments, the incumbent system was much better than the previous one and that its shortcomings, if any, could be and should be removed instead of uprooting it altogether. The PML-Q, Jamaat-iIslami and some minor parties would also attend the APC aimed at setting a joint line of action on local bodies, he said.</p> <p>&#160;</p> <p>&#160;</p> </span></span></p>
