ISLAMABAD: Talks between Tahirul Qadri, chief of the Tehrik-i-Minhajul Quran (TMQ), and a government delegation have ended successfully, DawnNews reported on Thursday evening.
Qadri, immediately after the talks, announced that “Islamabad resolution” has been approved which can be seen as a good news for the nation.
“We have reached an agreement. After getting the prime minister’s signature, we will read it in out front of protesters,” the TMQ chief told his supporters.
Tahirul Qadri, who supported a 1999 military coup, has been calling for the military to play a role in the formation of a caretaker administration in the run-up to elections due in May.
Protesters danced and cheered when Tahirul Qadri made the announcement, but the details of the declaration remained unclear.
