The government developed understanding on seven points with religious leaders. No written agreement was signed between government and protestors, he said while talking to a news channel.
The minister said religious leaders met him at his home on Tuesday and he warmly welcomed them. They showed willingness to settle the problem in a peaceful manner. He said earlier, Chief of Jamiat Ulema-e-Pakistan (Noorani) Shah Awais Noorani also contacted him.
Saad told the religious leaders that there was no space to sign a written agreement as the protestors had
damaged metro stations and other government property.
He said, “We will not release those protestors, who violated law and damaged public and government property.”
