Punjab law minister calls Imran’s long march unconstitutional

Mashhood says ‘long march’ to create chaos, anarchy in Pakistan

LAHORE – Punjab Law Minister Rana Mashhood Ahmed Khan on Friday said that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf had an agenda to derail democratic system.

Talking to journalists here today, the minister said that the long march of Imran Khan was unconstitutional and unlawful and would create chaos and anarchy in Pakistan. "Pakistan cannot afford such adventurism,” he said, adding the parliament was a proper forum of amendments in the constitution.

He said that Pakistan was passing through a most critical phase and political stability was imminent to resolve challenges. He said that the government believed in democracy and continued to strive in a right direction. He said people had seen faces of those who wanted to stop process of development.

He said since the most vital operation was underway against terrorists in North Waziristan and there was an urgent need to extend the all support to the Pakistan Army. He said that the PTI had done nothing during last year instead of having protests and rallies on roads.

He said those talking of revolution would soon be disappointed and people would reject those who were misguiding them through hollow slogans. Answering a question, the minister said the government was in favour of electoral reforms that was why the prime minister had already constituted a committee. Now the PTI leadership should settle the matters through negotiations, he said.
