Prime Minister Imran Khan refused on Monday to back down in the face opposition parties’ protest in Islamabad.
The opposition parties have been staging a protest sit-in in Islamabad. They seek PM Khan’s resignation and a snap election in the country.
The prime minister presided over a parliamentary party meeting of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and its coalition partners in Islamabad Monday.
Speaking to the attendees, he termed the Jamiat Ulema Islam-Fazl’s Azadi March an “international conspiracy” to destabilize the country.
PM Khan said the government provided a democratic way out to Azadi March protesters.
“No matter how long the participants of the sit-in stay there, we have no objection,” he said, promising to give a tough political fight to the opposition.
“If the opposition would give tough time, then the government would also not step back,” the prime minister asserted.
