PTI’s all constitutional demands accepted: Ahsan Iqbal
Earlier, talking to media in Islamabad, the federal minister for planning and development Ahsan Iqbal said that all demands of the PTI and the Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) have been accepted but their illegal and unconstitutional demand for resignation of the prime minister cannot be entertained.
The minister said that the tendency to dislodge the government through pressure tactics would render the system instable and no prime minister would be able to run the country smoothly in the future.
