KHANPUR: Pakistan Peoples Party Khanpur president Major (r) Farrukh Raza has said Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf chief Imran Khan should demonstrate political maturity and abandon his rigid and ego-centric style of politics. Raza was addressing a party meeting at his house on Wednesday. “Democracy entails practicing patience and tolerance. Rigid attitudes and stances should be avoided.” He said the PPP had displayed tolerance and sagacity even in tense situations. Dadu Ram, head of the PPP’s minority wing in Khanpur, also expressed apprehensions and said, “We support democracy. I request both Imran Khan and Pakistan Awami Tehreek chief Tahirul Qadri to resolve their issues through negotiations and allow democracy to prevail.”
