Saturday, 16 August 2014 - 3:20pm IST | Agency: ANI

Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan is likely to go down on his demand for the immediate resignation of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, sources within the party said.

According to the Dawn, sources say Imran may soften his demand and instead present a set of conditions that it expects the government to deliver as a course of action once he reaches the capital.

An unnamed party insider revealed that PTI will present a set of conditions to the government and if the government is sensible, they will deliver, adding that if the government met nine out of ten demands, the party would accept it. He further said that if the Nawas Sharif- led government expected the party to back off by meeting one out of the ten demands, the party will not move.

Meanwhile, another PTI official signaled that Imran might engage in a possible negotiation with the government upon his arrival in Islamabad.

Earlier, news reports suggested that the Pakistan military had successfully brokered an "unwritten" deal between the government and PTI.
