PTI’s sit-in for getting media attention: Murtaza Wahab


KARACHI: Advisor to Sindh Chief Minister (CM) on Information, Law and Anti-corruption, Barrister Murtaza Wahab has said that doors for negotiations with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leaders were always open; therefore, instead of staging sit-ins PTI leaders should negotiate with the government of Sindh which firmly believed that each and every issue could be resolved through negotiations.

The CM’s advisor expressed these views while talking to media persons at the Sindh Assembly on Tuesday.

He said that the PTI protest was quite uncalled for given the fact that the Sindh chief minister had already taken notice of law and order issues, adding that although the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) believed that protest is a fundamental right but the appropriate forum for debating on issues is the Sindh Assembly.

“The PTI has not come out of container politics even though they are in power now,” Wahab opined.

He further said that terrorism was a national issue and the Sindh government was utilising maximum resources to fix it.

“The PPP believes in democracy and the solution of problems through dialogue. I advising PTI members of the provincial assembly to resolve issues through negotiations instead of staging sit-ins,” he added.

Wahab also criticised the fact that an MNA belonging to PTI, along with his workers, had thrown sewage on the gate of the Sindh chief minister’s house a few days ago for not fulfilling his duties by cleaning streets where people were forced to live in sewage water for years.
