Federal Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah has said the negotiations with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) team are being initiated by the government under the direction of the Supreme Court.
He was addressing a press conference along with Federal Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb in Islamabad and termed the PTI’s rally illegal and unconstitutional.
Rana Sanaullah and Marriyum Aurangzeb told the media that Babar Awan will lead the PTI team while Attorney General with the other three members has been nominated by the Prime Minister.
The federal ministers have declared the Imran Khan’s two million long march a flop show as not more than three to four thousand people are included in the rally.
Interior Minister Sanaullah said the parliament should take notice of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Chief Minister's misuse of state machinery in the Imran’s rally to attack the federal capital.
He said KP CM’s act of using state machinery to support the PTI rally is a constitutional crime and they will face the consequences as it is an attack of a unit on the federation.
He said people have rejected the Imran’s long march as it is illegal and unconstitutional. He also congratulated and thanked people for not being a part of Imran’s rally.
He said Imran Khan following the international agenda to destabilize Pakistan has given the date of May 25 for sabotage talks with IMF.
On a query, Sanaullah said the situation would be clear within the next three to four hours when the rally will reach Islamabad as the government had made all arrangements of their ‘facilitation’.
Sanaullah told the media that in Punjab a total of 4,414 raids were made by police and only 1,724 people from Punjab and 3 people from Sindh have been detained under section 3 MPO.
He also said that approximately detained 250 people of PTI have been released after their statement of disassociated with the Imran Khan’s rallies.
Anyhow, he confirmed to the media that no agreement has been made with PTI yet.
