Islamabad- Information Minister, Pervaiz Rashid , has said that the government is ready to resume dialogue with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf at any time and venue to resolve the political stand-off.

Speaking on a TV channel, he said the government did not cancel talks with PTI and instead it was Imran Khan who prevented Shah Mehmood Qureshi from further dialogue.

He said Imran Khan should give permission to Shah Mehmood Qureshi to restore talks. Pervaiz Rashid welcomed PTI chief's statement to call off his sit in if rigging charges in general elections are not proved. To a question, he said PTI's demand regarding electoral reforms has already been accepted by the government and a committee in this regard is functioning. The Minister said the Prime Minister has already written a letter to the Supreme Court about formation of a judicial commission to probe the alleged rigging in 2013 elections.
