ISLAMABAD: The government is all set to amp up pressure on Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) to backtrack on its program to shut down Faisalabad on Monday; hence, the negotiations between the government and protesting PTI, are not likely to take place today.
The government led by Nawaz Sharif’s Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) tied the negotiations with the PTI’s decision to jettison the Faisalabad lockdown program.
The federal information minister Pervaiz Rashid held Kaptaan wholly responsible for the embitterment in the political ambience.
Putting up desperate overtones, the PTI asserted it is all intent on Faisalabad shutdown on Monday, calling for the government to express seriousness.
The sources privy to the PTI circles said the government contacted the party but informally; hence, the party’s core committee will thrash out the future program in meeting scheduled on Tuesday.
