Lamenting that there was a complete stalemate between the PTI and the establishment, former president and PTI stalwart Arif Alvi said on Sunday that it was necessary to talk to former prime minister and ex-PTI chairman Imran Khan so that the country could be put on the path to progress, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Addressing a press conference in Lahore with party’s Secretary Information Shaukat Basra sitting alongside him, Alvi said the solution to strained relations between the two sides lay in negotiations.

He said that Imran was giving sacrifices for democracy in the country. “He has even sacrificed his ego,” he said.

The former president said he thought there was pressure on the judiciary. “I will continue to defend the Pakistan Army,” he vowed.  

He said there needed to be freedom of media in the country. “There is no gainsaying the fact that these are the people who have control over the social media,” Alvi said.

The former president further said that what was happening in Gaza these days was evident from the pictures coming from the occupied area. “There was a hope that people would raise their voice against atrocities by the Israeli forces against the people of Gaza.”  

Shaukat Basra says Imran’s release to break deadlock

Speaking on the occasion, PTI leader Shaukat Basra said relations between the PTI and the establishment could improve if Imran was released from Adiala Jail. “However, if the present situation is not arrested, we may face the 1971-like situation when the country had split into two, culminating in the creation of Bangladesh.
