ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran said on Friday that there was no need for negotiations with the Azadi Marchers if his resignation was their only demand.
The prime minister held separate meetings with Punjab Assembly Speaker Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi and the Rahbar Committee regarding the Azadi March.
Elahi apprised the prime minister of the developments in his talks with Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman. He sought advice from the prime minister on how to proceed further in his negotiations with Fazl.
The government’s negotiating team met the prime minister to inform him about the demands of the Rahbar Committee.
“There’s a lot of talk going on about my resignation,” said the prime minister. “If that is the only demand of the opposition, then there is no need for negotiations,” he said.
