PSP says negotiation with PPP failed, announces to continue protest
KARACHI: The second session of negotiations between Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) and Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP) ended without reaching a consensus on late Wednesday night outside Karachi Press Club (KPC), ARY News reported.
The PPP delegates include provincial transport minister Nasir Shah, Coordinator Chief Minister Sindh Rashid Rabbani, and former Advisor to Chief Minister Sindh Waqar Mehdi.
Terming the negotiations failed to reach a conclusion, PSP leader Dr. Sagheer Ahmed apprised media that the sit-in would continue until the party demands were not met. He also said the party had presented its 16 demands to the delegation.
Contrary to claims of Dr. Sagheer, the provincial transport minister Nasir Shah looked optimistic and said that most of the demands were accepted while negotiations on few were underway, adding, “Soon PSP protest will come to an end.”
Meanwhile, the chairman PSP Mustafa Kamal termed the party demands justified while urging the provincial government to fulfill the party demands.
Dr. Sagheer Ahmed also said that an action plan will be devised in near future to establish contacts with federal government to seek fulfillment of the party demands.
