Former President and senior Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) leader Dr Arif Alvi reiterated that Imran Khan is ready to hold a dialogue but only with those “who could offer something”, Dawn reported.

Alvi said that holding talks with those who had come into power through ‘Form 47s’ would be futile.

Interestingly, during the interaction with reporters outside the Karachi Press Club, Alvi tried to downplay a social media post from Imran Khan’s account on social media which made a comparison with Pakistan’s current political turmoil with events during the fall of Dhaka, saying “It’s never about the whole institution but a few individuals”.


However, the former president warned that the prevailing situation in the country was “pushing everyone towards a dead-end”.

“We never invited the military to intervene in politics, but Imran Khan wants to talk to those who have the power to decide,” he said in response to a question.

“If these talks aren’t held, it would further push everyone to a dead end,” warned the senior PTI leader.
