ISLAMABAD – Special Adviser on National Affairs Irfan Siddiqui said on Friday that Dr Tahirul Qadri and Imran Khan should sit together and decide the sequence of the 'Tsunami' or 'revolution.'
In an interview here, Siddiqui said Tahirul Qadri wants to disturb everything to take revenge of his failures from the nation. He said that there was no difference between Dr Qadri and those who want to force their viewpoint on others with the might of the gun. He said that the change will never come by gathering one or two million people; rather it will come through the 342 members sitting in the parliament.
Irfan said that Operation Zarb-e-Azb was launched because a particular group wanted to impose its ideas on others on gunpoint. He said that Dr Qadri is also doing the same thing. The PM's advisor said if Imran Khan was serious in electoral reforms then he should work with the parliamentary committee on this subject. He said the committee has been empowered to recommend constitutional amendments for electoral reforms.
The advisor said that the PTI is a democratic party and has ample representation in the parliament. Therefore, he said, the PTI should test its parliamentary power instead of resorting of street agitations. Irfan Siddiqui said one of the case pertaining to four constituencies, which have been repeatedly pointed out by the PTI, has been decided, while proceedings are underway on other constituencies.
He said there is no law which allows the president or the prime minister to form a commission on four constituencies on the wish of a political party. He said the PTI should learn from the older parties like the PML-N and PPP that the politics of agitation brings nothing. He said everything about August 14 is uncertain except the fact that Independence Day will be celebrated on that day.
He said the problems of the displaced families will be resolved and no leniency will be tolerated. He said the displaced families are playing their role in Jehad against terrorism.
