Not aware of details for second agreement with TLP: Sh Rashid

Staff Reporter

Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid on Thursday said he was involved in the first agreement between the state and Tehreek-i-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) but is not aware of details for the second such agreement between the two sides.

“When it [the second deal with TLP] comes to light, everyone will know about it,” said the minister while addressing a ceremony in Rawalpindi. The minister added that he was in favour of dialogue with the religious party.

Acknowledging that the next three months were vital for the country, he maintained that “nothing is going to happen”.

The federal minister further added that PTI’s political allies had reservations about electoral reforms whereas the decision of the National Assembly Speaker to postpone the joint sitting of the Parliament must have been taken with forethought. “Opposition is only doing politics for TV audiences,” he said.
