The government has not kept its word on the issue of raising Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) demands with the parliament, 24NewsHD TV channel reported on Monday.

A couple of months ago, the TLP went on a protest against the government for the latter's failure to react to 'blasphemous acts befittingly'.

Initially, the government stood firm and refused to accept the protesting party's demands. 

As the TLP supporters started a long march to the federal capital after the deadline, the government sealed a deal and protesters dispersed. 

It assured the TLP of constituting a 20-member parliamentary committee – 11 members from the government and nine from the opposition. 

The committee was formed to address the matter, they said, adding that no committee meeting took place so far.

As the TLP leadership questioned the government's dillydallying, the government blamed the delay on the opposition.

The TLP leadership called upon JUI chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman to take up the matter in the parliament and sought cooperation from the opposition, they said.

According to the JUI-F chief, the government is not serious but he vowed to second the TLP on the issue at all forums.
