Marches (Govt didn’t take any action despite provocative statements by PTI and PAT leadership)August 17, 2014
Islamabad: Minister for Kashmir Affairs Birjees Tahir has said the Government did not take any action despite provocative statements by PTI and PAT leadership.
In an interview, he referred to the call of civil disobedience by Imran Khan and said he seems to be under mental pressure because of thin attendance in the long march and sit-in.
Meanwhile, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister Irfan Siddiqui has said members of the two negotiating committees would engage in talks with PTI and PAT with open mind. He said there are differences, but a middle way can be found.
Amir Jamaat-e-Islami Sirajul Haq said he talked to the Interior Minister and is also in contact with Imran Khan. He expressed the hope that the issue would be sorted out amicably.
Leader of Qaumi Watan Party Aftab Ahmad Khan Sherpao said the Government made reconciliatory gesture by announcing formation of two committees for talks. He, however, regretted that proper response is not visible from the other side.
