TAXILA: Former interior minister Chaudhry Nisar remarked on Saturday that for the country to progress it is imperative that the current sit-in trend comes to an end.
While speaking to media in Taxila, he said that if these protests became too common, it would be easy for just anyone to get their demands met.
He further said that he was not against protests as they are part of democracy, but anything that affects daily life should be avoided.
Nisar said that he maintains his stance that no one should be allowed to occupy Faizabad Interchange as it would seal the way to both Rawalpindi and Islamabad.
He said that he does not believe in engaging in politics of violence as politicians are supposed to be agents of peace.
Nisar reiterated that PML-N should not target the entire judiciary and army for no good reason.
The former interior minister refused to comment on a statement of Awami Muslim League Chief Sheikh Rasheed saying that Rasheed changes his loyalty every minute and that the media should stop giving importance to such people.
