Protesters turned down govt’s offer to send Law Minister on leave

ISLAMABAD: The government team currently negotiating with the heads of religious parties whose protest has paralysed the capital for nearly a fortnight has offered to send the law minister on leave or reshuffle his portfolio.

However, the leadership of the protesting Tehreek-i-Labbaik Ya Rasool Allah is said to have turned down the proposal.

Sources privy to the talks between government teams and the protesters said that a number of possible options were offered to the sit-in leaders in return for calling off the protest, but all of them were rejected.

Insiders said that the protest leaders are demanding the minister’s removal from the cabinet, adding that this was not acceptable to the government, which has led to a deadlock.
