Political, religious and business leaders reject PTI’s call for civil disobedienceAugust 17, 2014
Islamabad: Political and religious leaders have rejected PTI Chairman Imran Khan’s call for a civil disobedience movement against the government. They said the move is immature and unworthy of a national leader.
Minister for Inter-Provincial Coordination Riaz Hussain Pirzada said this is a dangerous move that could undermine the delicate inter-provincial harmony.
He said it is because of the nature of politics of Imran Khan that PTI is on one side today and all other political parties on the other.
Senior Vice President of Awami National Party Bushra Gohar regretted that Imran Khan is trying to incite people whereas many of his own party-men are not supportive of his demands.
President Pakistan Ulema Council Hafiz Tahir Ashrafi said people of Pakistan including political and religious leaders have rejected the call of PTI chairman and he should now come to the negotiating table to sort out issues.
Senator Haji Ghulam Ali of JUI-F said PTI leadership has pushed the party to a blind alley.
He said people of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa have showed indifference towards long march of PTI as Chief Minister of the province and his entire cabinet team could only manage to bring about two thousand people to Islamabad.
Meanwhile, business community has also rejected Imran’s call for civil disobedience.
