Political deadlock: Azadi March has failed, says Mashhood

Mashhood says Gujranwala incident was tragic and urged the PTI leaders to avoid inappropriate language

Our Correspondent August 16, 2014


Law Minister Rana Mashhood said on Friday that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf had been disappointed at the failure of the Azadi March.

He said the Gujranwala incident was tragic and urged the PTI leaders to avoid inappropriate language. The minister said PTI activists had pelted stones at the office of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz and had provoked its workers.  Mashhood said the Azadi March lacked popular support. He said the government had allowed the PTI to march to Islamabad despite a Lahore High Court ruling that the demands were unconstitutional. He said the PTI was spoiling for a confrontation with the government after the failure of the march. Mashhood said PAT chief Tahirul Qadri was lying about the Model Town violence. He said Qadri was seeking political mileage from dead bodies. He said the government had allowed PAT to undertake the march after it had assured them that the march would be peaceful.

@Siraj Ahmed: You are right, IK is being humiliated. For IK to ask for civil disobedient is very immature if he wants to be next PM. This kind of behaviour is not appropriate for a PM candidate.

The reason this individual still has the face to come in public, should tell a lot about PMLN.
