Rana Sana calls for ‘greater dialogue’ among all stakeholders
March 31, 2023 04:08 AM
Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah has said that “a greater dialogue” was the need of the hour in order to address the issues that are currently plaguing Pakistan, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
“Yesterday, the Chief Justice said that the political temperature needed to be lowered,” said Sanaullah while talking to media men outside the Supreme Court in Islamabad on Thursday. He added the coalition government also wanted to bring down the political temperature.
“But onus is on Iman Khan for raising the political temperature of the country to such heights,” he alleged. “Imran wants chaos and anarchy in the country.”
Rana Sanaullah called for holding greater dialogue among all stakeholders including opposition parties and treasury benches, establishment and judiciary to steer the country out of prevailing multiple crises and put it back on path of development and prosperity.
The minister said this greater dialogue will help in evolving a consensus agenda over charter of economy, charter of democracy and charter of peace. He said it will also help defuse boiling political temperature in the country and resolve the sufferings of the common man.
He said the government respects and honours the opinion of the Chief Justice and other judges of the apex court. However, if the dialogue is to be held only for optic purpose, it will serve nothing.
Replying to a question, the Interior Minister expressed the resolve that terrorism was neither out of control nor it would be so in future. Our armed forces are fully competent and capable enough and carrying out intelligence-based operations against terrorists on daily basis. They are also rendering sacrifices for the defence of the motherland.
Rana Sanaullah said despite all these actions and operations, threats of terrorism still exist, but all the relevant authorities are in coordination and discharging their duties to root out this menace.
Replying to a question, he said the stubbornness and obstinacy of Imran Khan is the main hurdle in initiation of dialogue.
Answering yet another question, he said talks should be held first to streamline the economy ruined by Imran Khan and cool down the heating political temperature.
He said under the prevailing circumstance, elections will result in only disturbance and anarchy in the country, which is the main agenda of PTI and Imran Khan.
