Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan gives a stern warning
ISLAMABAD - Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan gives a stern warning to JUI - F leadera and workers who intend to break law in Azadi March.Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan on Tuesday made it overtly clear that he neither fears any sit-in nor fear any march.
While presiding over a huddle of Federal Cabinet, the premier warned that any violation of agreement [signed between government’s negotiating committee and opposition’s Rahber Committee] would lead to stern legal action.
“If an agreement has been inked with those carrying out Azadi March then it is a good gesture. We had also staged a sit-in for 126 days; staging sit-ins or carrying out a march is not an easy thing. I hope that those participating in Azadi March will adhere by the agreement”, the premier was quoted as saying in the meeting.
PM added that government’s negotiating committee is free in making decisions.
Briefing the attendants on current happenings, Defence Minister Pervez Khattak apprised that committee was looking after JUI-F’s Azadi March on daily basis.
“JUI-F was allowed to stage a public gathering in Islamabad under an agreement. Ostensibly, it seems that JUI-F would stage a day-long public gathering, however, they [JUI-F] can extend its stay”, Khattak told attendants.
