What forced govt to sign agreement with Faizabad protesters, asks Rabbani


  Updated November 27, 2017

Senate Chairman Raza Rabbani on Monday admonished Minister of State for Interior Affairs Talal Chaudhry and asked that “the house wants to know what forced the government to sign an agreement with the protesters” who had staged a sit-in at Faizabad.

After the weeks-long protest that virtually paralysed the capital, the government and protesters reached an agreement late Sunday night, in which the former conceded to the latter’s demands.

Rabbani asked why Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal was not present in the Senate to explain the government’s position on the agreement with the Faizabad sit-in protesters.

To this Chaudhry replied that Ahsan Iqbal was travelling and, therefore, could not be contacted.
