PTI softens stand, ready for talks with Pakistan government

Islamabad, Dec 10: The Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) which has been holding anti-government protests in the country is ready to hold talks with the government, media reported on Wednesday.

"The government is yet to contact formally or informally the party for a resumption of dialogue," said party spokesperson Shireen Mazari, Dawn online reported. He also stressed that the PTI would not accept 'conditional talks'.

Sources said that earlier the PTI core committee had decided that its 'Plan C' - of shutting down various cities and eventually the entire country - would only be called off after a written agreement was signed between the two sides on the formation of a judicial commission to investigate allegations of rigging in the 2013 general poll and the finalisation of the commission's terms of reference.

The committee, which met in Islamabad on Tuesday, also passed a resolution condemning the violence in Faisalabad a day earlier and expressed profound grief over the death of Haq Nawaz, the PTI worker who the party claimed had been killed by 'ruling party goons'.
