Islamabad: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has suspended all negotiations with government. “We have suspended all negotiations and also informed opposition jirga of our decision as well” PTI leader Jehangir Tareen has stated this while addressing a press conference on Saturday. He said that their democratic right to protest is being violated by the government.

Tareen questioned that if it is lawful of police to arrest peaceful workers from their homes and roads while addressing the media in Islamabad. “The government is hiding that four to eight people were killed during the clashes between police and protesters,” he alleged. Responding a question PTI leader said that we will not move back an inch.

While given warning to IG Islamabad, Tareen said that PTI’s Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa president Azam Swati was detained and their workers are being mistreated.

Further Tareen stated that PTI had submitted an application to register an FIR, nominating Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar and IG police for three people killed during clashes with the police two weeks ago. However the FIR has not been registered yet. “We will appear before the sessions court on Monday regarding our FIR,” he reiterated.

Responding another question PTI leader Dr Arif Alvi said that that peaceful PTI workers were “picked up” from their houses on Friday’s night and put behind bars.

Responding to allegations of PTI workers deflating tyres of police vans, Tareen said, “We have directed our workers to remain peaceful had we not, a war would have begun in Islamabad. He said that government is arresting people out of fear following PTI Chief Imran Khan’s announcement to celebrate their month-long protest.
