Nawaz expresses displeasure at government’s Failure over Faizabad sit in protest


Web Desk: ISLAMABAD: Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif chaired an informal consultative meeting of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leaders on Tuesday where he discussed, among other matters, the government’s handling of the Faizabad sit-in. In the meeting held at Punjab House, the ousted prime minister expressed displeasure at the government’s ‘failure’ in handling the weeks-long Faizabad sit-in and the ensuing operation, which resulted in 200 injuries in Islamabad and prompted countrywide protests. During a talk with party workers, Nawaz said that in Pakistan, the elected prime ministers are removed, hanged, arrested or exiled. “Nowhere else does this happen,” he told party supporters, according to sources. The former premier said countries prosper through democracy, adding that none have progressed while being led by dictators. Moreover, the PML-N president vowed to work with other political parties and workers to safeguard democracy. According to sources, Nawaz also separately met with Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal and State Minister for Interior Talal Chaudhry. Pakhutnkhwa Milli Awami Party chief Mehmood Khan Achakzai also met Nawaz today. The participants of the meeting also discussed the situation arising following the resignation of Federal Law Minister Zahid Hamid and deliberated over the measures to be taken next.
