Federal govt willing to negotiate with Imran, Qadri: Saad Rafique


ISLAMABAD: The federal government wants to hold talks with the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan and the Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) Leader Dr Tahirul Qadri to settle issues as negotiations are the only way through which differences can be removed.

These remarks were made by the federal minister for railways Khawaja Saad Rafique while talking to a TV channel.

The minister said that Dr Tahirul Qadri is an undemocratic person while Imran Khan is not playing his role to strengthen democracy which was expected of him.

Saad Rafiq said that both these leaders are levelling allegations against the government without any evidence.

Moreover, he said that a judicial commission is probing the Lahore incident and stern action would be taken against those found responsible in the light of its report.
