Peo­ple want peace

Pakistan Observer - - NATIONAL -

IS­LAM­ABAD— Min­is­ter of State for Cap­i­tal Ad­min­is­tra­tion and De­vel­op­ment Di­vi­sion (CADD) Dr Tariq Fazal Chaudhry Sun­day said the peo­ple wanted peace, job op­por­tu­ni­ties and de­vel­op­ment in the coun­try, and not protests and sit-ins. He said the na­tion had re­jected the sitins held by the Pak­istan Tehreek-e-In­saf at D-Chowk and would not back its such en­deav­ours any more be­cause protests had dam­aged the na­tional econ­omy. Talk­ing to a news chan­nel, the min­is­ter said the na­tion was well aware about the PTI’s tac­tics. It chief Imran Khan, he said, had been ad­dress­ing empty chairs dur­ing party’s pub­lic meet­ings. Dr Tariq Fazal said hold­ing peace­ful protest was right of every citizen, but law would take its course against the vi­o­la­tors. The PTI work­ers had at­tacked na­tional in­sti­tu­tions, in­clud­ing the Par­lia­ment and Pak­istan Tele­vi­sion (PTV), dur­ing the sit-in and the law would take its due course, he added.—APP
