PPP urges having talks with PTI despite opposition from PML-N and JUI-F.
Mushahid favours dialogue to end crisis
Mushahid Hussain Sayed, a senator for the PML-N, asked the government and PTI on Friday to quit battling the Supreme Court and the establishment, respectively, and lay the ground conditions for elections on time.
He was responding to a calling attention motion made in the House by lawmakers from both the government and the opposition over India’s attempt to have the Indus Waters Treaty revised. (IWT).
He fervently supported communication between the opposition and the ruling coalition, arguing that since talks were being provided to terrorists and Modi, why not them?
Mushahid emphasised that Pakistan needed to organise itself and show unity in order to confront India since Washington was also supporting New Delhi in its efforts to confront China in the area.
In reference to his most recent trip to China, he stated that the advice from the seasoned friend was for all political parties to speak up for Pakistan and its citizens by putting aside party lines and personal allegiances.
He lamented that the ruling coalition chose to take on the Supreme Court while the PTI was engaged in a conflict with the establishment.
The Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi was offered a discussion, so why didn’t we hold talks among ourselves, he questioned.
“Let us talk to the opposition also and other parties and set the rules of the game so that elections are held on schedule and the Constitution is followed,” he said after emphasising that even they were willing to speak with terrorists.
