The ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Monday called upon Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) to postpone the planned protest till a ‘logical conclusion’ of government-PTI talks. In reaction to PTI’s massive show in Lahore and the reportedly misconduct of the party workers with traders and media persons, PML-N secretary-general Iqbal Zafar Jhagra urged the entire nation and the political leadership to request PTI chief Imran Khan to refrain from increasing the chances of a “civil war”.
“The success of dialogue process is directly linked to the behaviour of Imran Khan and his party,” Jhagra said, adding the dialogue process could not yield any positive result without any flexibility in Imran’s conduct. He said the government was making every possible effort for the success of the dialogue process, adding PTI should postpone its protest drive till a logical conclusion of negotiation.
Meanwhile, PML-N central secretary-information Senator Mushahidulllah Khan regretted the ‘harsh’ statements coming from PTI and its leadership amid a dialogue process. He maintained that the PTI chief’s behaviour is putting the democratic process at risk. “Imran Khan will be held responsible in case the dialogue process fails,” he said. However, he added, the dialogue process has bright prospects
