According to reports, TLYR chief said that army offered to be the mediator when the confrontation turned bloody.

“We did not trust the word of any government representative to be the mediator,” he said.

He said that Law Minister Zahid Hamid had resigned from his post after Chief Of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa had provided his assurance.

The TLYR chief slammed Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal and Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif.

“Shehbaz Sharif is lying, he was not the mediator in the talks,” he said.

It is pertinent to mention here that the three-week-long dharna at a busy traffic interchange of the federal capital finally ended on Monday after the government agreed to the demands of a religious party.
