A pro-Taliban politician was on Thursday elected as deputy chairman of Pakistan's upper house of parliament.
In a statement issued by his spokesperson, Rahman said neither has there been any contacts, nor has the government approached the JUI-F regarding the talks, reports The Nation.
Pakistan`s political party Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) has blamed the unrest being spread across the country on a pre-planned conspiracy.
Maulana Fazl escaped two life attempts within a span of 24 hours when two suicide bombers blew up their explosives.
The JUI-F has expressed dissatisfaction over the strength of security provided to party Chief Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman.
The ruling PPP has failed to persuade JUI-F chief to change his stance regarding the sacking of JUI-F member and Science and Technology Minister.
