Govt-TLP Agreement: PM Imran Khan is expected to brief the public on the government’s agreement with the TLP

Prime Minister Imran Khan is scheduled to brief the public on a secret Govt-TLP agreement reached between the government and the banned Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP), according to sources.

According to sources familiar with the issue, the prime minister will likely address the nation to discuss the country’s ongoing political crisis, as well as the country’s political and security circumstances.

The development came after the government began enforcing the terms of the agreement it had reached with the outlawed group. According to reports, about 800 adherents of the organization were released in Punjab as a result of the implementation.

At a session with the government’s coalition partners early in the day, the prime minister, according to sources, reassured MPs about the Govt-TLP agreement.

Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui of the MQM-P, Aminul Haque, the Federal Minister of Information and Technology, and Farogh Naseem, the Federal Minister of Law, all attended meetings.

Awami League was represented by Minister for Interior Sheikh Rasheed, GDA was represented by Minister for Inter-Provincial Coordination Fehmida Mirza, and PML-Q was represented by Federal Minister for Water Resources Moonis Elahi in the partnership.

Participants at the discussion debated whether or not to call a special meeting of parliament. According to insiders, the coalition partners also promised the premier that they would be on the same page on crucial national issues.
