Imran wants to topple government: Pervaiz

* Minister says govt has established direct contacts with Imran; trying to bring him and Qadri on talks table

ISLAMABAD: Information Minister Pervaiz Rasheed has alleged that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan wants to topple the democratically elected government.
In a statement issued on Saturday, Pervaiz Rasheed said that bringing electoral reforms was not the real agenda of the PTI chief.
He accused Imran Khan of wanting to get the assemblies of the four provinces dissolved and then lodge himself at the helms of country’s rule.
Pervaiz Rasheed also hinted at going for negotiation with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and Pakistan Awami Tehreek to resolve issues at the negotiating table.
In an interview, the minister said that the government was trying its best to bring Imran Khan and Tahirul Qari to the negotiating table to settle matter in a democratic manner.
He said that the government had established direct contacts with the PTI chief and the matter was moving forward in this regard.
He said that the PML-N government believed in democratic values, adding that all issues and differences could be resolved thorough negotiation. He said that doors to negotiation should never be closed, adding that protesting was no solution to any dispute.
The minister said that the PML-N would talk to the PTI leadership during the next session of National Assembly being held next week.
He said that the government would take all political parties on board to strengthen democracy in the country.
Meanwhile, Federal Minister for Kashmir Affairs Birjees Tahir said Imran Khan to date had failed to reach any decision on the alleged rigging in the intra-party elections of the PTI.
