All political parties to hold dialogue to resolve issues: Tariq

ISLAMABAD: Minister of State for Capital Administration and Development Division (CAAD), Dr Tariq Fazal Chaudhry Tuesday said all political parties should hold political dialogue to resolve national issues.

Political parties should refrain to criticise each other and play a constructive role for the development and progress of the country, he said talking to a private news channel.

The minister said it was new trend in the country’s politics that if two political parties were evolving consensus on issues then other was terming it a deal that was immature politics.

He alleged that Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) promoted politics of agitation and chaos in the country and its chief Imran Khan was using derogatory language against political opponents which was not suitable.

Dr Tariq Fazal urged political parties to sit together for electoral reforms to ensure transparency in system, then nobody can make hue and cry of ragging in the elections.

Replying to a question, he said former Prime Minister Mohammad Nawaz Sharif was disqualified on having Iqama which was not even an allegation against him in Panama Papers case. He termed it a injustice with system and country.

The minister said such disqualification decisions in the past were still criticising by parties and other segments of society.
