LAHORE: Senior Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Fawad Chaudhary said on Sunday that his party wanted discussions with the coalition government to succeed but that it also had a “strategy” in place if the talks failed.
“PTI wants negotiations [with the government] to succeed, but it has a strategy in place if talks fail,” the former information minister tweeted.
He further stated that PTI will not remain mute if the government treats the Constitution as trash and the populace as insects.
“It is not possible for PTI to sit silently if the Constitution is regarded as a piece of garbage,” he remarked, urging people to brace themselves for a “big movement.”
The rallies will begin in Lahore, Islamabad, and Peshawar, according to Fawad Chaudhry, under the supervision of party chairman Imran Khan.
It is worth noting that delegations from the government and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) met twice to discuss holding elections in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP).
During the second round of talks, PTI delegation requested that the National Assembly (NA) be dissolved before the budget.
The sides are now set to hold the last round of negotiations on May 2 after two rounds of meetings. In addition, the group rejected the government’s decision to hold general elections in October.
Yesterday, PTI decided to continue talks with the government about the structure for Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) elections within the framework of the Constitution.
The decision was made at a meeting presided over by party chairman and former Prime Minister Imran Khan, who lives in Lahore’s Zaman Park.
Despite the ‘illegal’ raid on Elahi’s house, the majority of participants believe that talks with the government should continue. The raids and arrests were viewed as ‘attempts to disrupt the negotiations’ by the participants.
