Azadi March: Nisar says sit-ins setting a bad trend
TAXILA: Commenting on Azadi March, former interior minister and veteran politician Chaudhry Nisar on Wednesday said that changing the government through the sit-ins would lead to a bad tradition, ARY News reported.
Speaking to journalists in Taxila, Chaudhry Nisar said that the one who rejected the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) sit-in in 2014 calling it wrong is declaring the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazal’s (JUI-F) Azadi Match right today, adding that it is very difficult to get rid of a sit-in once it is staged.
Chaudhry Nisar said Pakistan is surrounded by many security issues. “It is not a valid decision to allow Indian Sikhs to enter Pakistan without a passport”, he added.
Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) top leaders, Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain and Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi, reached the residence of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman and resumed talks over ongoing Azadi March.
