Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf vice president Shah Mehmood Qureshi has told reporters on Thursday in Islamabad that his party has suspended negotiation process.

Mehmood Qureshi said that PTI’s decision to discontinue the political dialogue to resolve the political deadlock has been conveyed to Governor Punjab Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar.

Government representatives were scheduled to meet with the PTI negotiation committee in a local hotel on Thursday. However, when the representative arrived in the hotel for discussion, PTI team was absent.

Shah Mehmood Qureshi said that government is arresting PTI workers and blocking the roads to Islamabad which make it impossible to continue the dialogue.
