Federal Minister Javed Latif on Wednesday hit out at Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan stating: “This person should be arrested and punished,” reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Addressing a press conference, he questioned: “In what capacity is President Arif Alvi brokering negotiations in the President’s House? For what purpose is the oath being taken from people in Peshawar?”

He further questioned: “Fawad Chaudhry says the government should be part of the negotiations. Tell us! Against whom are these Jihadists taking the pledge of Jihad from people? In what capacity are you talking about making us sit in the negotiations?”

He added: “Imran Khan has carried out an unconstitutional struggle. Can negotiations be held with those who wish to address institutions? This person [Imran Khan] should be arrested and punished.”

He stated: “What Imran Khan had said about the integrity, stability and economy of Pakistan cannot be forgotten. Nawaz Sharif faced prisons, and he had undergone strict accountability.”

He also said: “We have never called any watchman, Mir Jafar or Mir Sadiq. We identified the wrong persons in the institutions which was our obligation.”

He noted: “The nation cannot bear it anymore that he [Imran Khan] should further be pampered. Nawaz Sharif suffered injustice in courts. We do not want injustice with anyone, but he should be dealt with according to the law and Constitution.”

He also pointed out: “If everyone is not made to start from zero in the race, it will not be called a level playing field.”
