Abdul Ghafoor Haideri says meeting will be held at D Chowk
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – JUI-F secretary general Abdul Ghafoor Haideri has said that the meeting will be held at D Chowk at all costs. Talking to the media on Saturday, he termed the news about opposition’s willingness to hold the meeting at Parade Ground as fabricated and baseless. Nayyar Bukhari said that the government is spreading rumours about the meeting at Parade Ground. “The government has not contacted the opposition after the night,” he said. Earlier on Friday, the talks between the government and the opposition ended inconclusively after two rounds. According to sources, the government has rejected the demands of the opposition. The opposition had demanded to hold the meeting either at D Chowk or China Chowk. However, the government refused to allow the meeting at any place except New Parade Ground. The Dialogue Committee informed the Rahbar Committee after consulting Prime Minister Imran Khan. After the talks, Defence Minister Pervaiz Khattak said that the talks remained inconclusive; however, the dialogues will continue. “No decision could be made today. It will be made during the next sessions,” he said. Rahbar Committee chairman Akram Durrani said that they had not reached a conclusion for the time being. “However, the talks will continue. No timeframe has been settled,” he added. The government team headed was by Defence Minister Pervez Khattak with the 11-member Rehbar Committee having representation of all major opposition parties at the residence of Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam (JUI-F) leader Akram Khan Durrani.
