Islamabad- Federal Information Minister, Pervaiz Rashid said today that the deadline set by Tahirul Qadri and Imran Khan was for democracy and not for the government.
He said that the difference between the democratic and undemocratic forces made crystal clear today and now the democratic forces have to come out with their strategy. In a TV interview Pervaiz Rashid said that a commission has been set up on the demand of Imran Khan and the government through talks was trying to convince him, as those demanding for a commission have been retracted by now.
Federal information minister said that 35 assembly members and a crowd of 5,000 persons can't overthrow the democratically elected government. It may be recalled that Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chiefs Tahirul Qadri and Imran Khan respectively addressing their protesting workers and supporters here had set a 48-hour deadline for the prime minister to step down.
