ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said on Sunday that peaceful protest was an inalienable right of all political parties and directed the Punjab government that there should be no violation in this regard.

Talking to Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif on telephone, the prime minister said democracy and peaceful protests were interlinked.

The Punjab government should ensure that no authority created any impediment in the way of this constitutional right of all citizens, including political parties, he said, adding that all issues should be resolved through dialogue.—APP
