Only dialogue can end political problems: Khursheed

Martial law regimes responsible for present crisis: Siraj

 KARACHI: In a meeting between Jamat-e-Islami Ameer Sirajul Haq and Opposition leader in National Assembly and of Pakistan People s Party Syed Khursheed Shah at his residence in Karachi on Sunday, both leaders discussed the current political crisis.

Sirajul Haq said that the political leadership should resolve the crisis politically, the democracy should not be derailed at any cost, and stressed that martial law is not an answer to the current political scenario. According to opposition leader Khursheed Shah all the parties should sit down and resolve the political differences.

Sirajul Haq met opposition leader Khursheed Shah at his residence in Karachi on Sunday. Both leaders discussed the current political crisis that has been caused because of the Azadi and Inqilab March by Imran Khan and Tahirul Qadri respectively.

Speaking with media after the meeting, Sirajul Haq said that the protest rallies in Islamabad are causing problems throughout the country. He is of the view that democracy should not be derailed at any cost. Martial law is not an answer to any problems, said Sirajul Haq.

Earlier martial law regimes are in fact responsible for the present crisis Pakistan is facing, he added. He told the media that the issues should be resolved politically through a democratic process.

Emotions and aggression should be kept aside when dealing with the current problems, said Sirajul Haq. He remarked that both parties should agree to resolve the crisis and there is still some time left for the government to tackle issues with good will.

Khursheed Shah, on the other hand, said that we must not lose hope and there would be no compromise on the supremacy of the Constitution, rule of law and continuation of democracy. We will contact all the political parties to sit down and tackle the differences collectively, said Khursheed Shah.

He was of the view that a dialogue seems to be the only sound solution to the political problems. Pakistan s survival depends on the peaceful resolution of differences and in the continuation of democracy, said Khursheed Shah. DNA
