Conspirators will be defeated at all costs: Nawaz

LAHORE: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said on Sunday that the government will protect democracy and foil those conspiring against it, at any cost. He said those doing politics of violence and confrontation were the enemies of development and prosperity. In a meeting with Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif to chalk out a plan of action to deal with the anti-government campaigns of Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) chief Tahirul Qadri and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan, the prime minister said “the journey of development which had started after the general elections will continue”. “If anybody thinks that they will oust a popular government through protest or sit-in, they are mistaken,” the prime minister said. He said the unity showed by the national political parties in the National Security Conference will help eliminate terrorism from the country. Both the leaders resolved to deal with the political situation administratively while agreeing that the atmosphere of anarchy and lawlessness will not be tolerated in the country while the operation Zarb-e-Azb is going on. They agreed that the law enforcement will be ensured. Earlier, Shahbaz Sharif expressed grief and anger over the killing of at least three policemen in violent clashes between police and PAT workers, vowing that the culprits cannot escape the grip of law. It was decided that strict action will be taken against those who took the law into their own hands.
