Mian Manzoor Ahmed Wattoo while talking to media in Gujranwala today said that he believed that Imran Khan and Dr-Tahir-ul- Qadari would hopefullyagree not to insist on the resignation of the Prime Minister if their other demands were accepted by the government.
He said that the present government was responsible of the present political dead lock and therefore it was its responsibility to defuse it by accepting their demands. Had the government accepted the demands of Imran Khan earlier regarding the probe in four constituencies of Lahore the present volatile situation had never arise in the first place, he observed.
