ISLAMABAD: Senior analyst Mujeeb-ur-Rehman Shami on Monday said Pakistan had suffered a lot due to sit-ins and protests in terms of economy, besides of image abroad.
Talking to Pakistan Television (PTV), he said all issues regarding investigation of previous general elections, ensuring transparency in next elections and revamping of Election Commission had been agreed by the government and protesting parties.
The only issue was the resignation of Prime Minister, bu how could an elected prime minister resign when the whole parliament was supporting him, he added.
He opined that if the people at the helm of government affairs were forced to quit by holding protests and sit-ins, then no prime minister or chief minister would survive in future.
He said releasing of PTI workers from the custody of police by Imran Khan was a wrong precedent as such acts could promote lawlessness in the country.
Meanwhile, senior analyst Zia-ud-Din said media played an irresponsible role during Inqlab and Azadi marches right from the start.
There was a huge ideological difference between PTI and PAT but it the former seemed to be following the latter in every action, he added.
He said PAT chief Tahirul Qadri had issued a number of decrees against Taliban but PTI Chairman Imran Khan was in favour of negotiations with them.
