Fazl warns govt to step down otherwise face march towards Islamabad
Earlier, JUI-F chief Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman warned on Sunday that this government must step down till August otherwise opposition would march towards Islamabad in October.
Speaking to the participants of the ‘Million March’, the JUI-F chief said that if the federal government resigned by August, it would then be able to save themselves from the opposition’s march. “If the leadership failed to do so, then, in October, Fazl and his allies would march to Islamabad alongside the entire country,” he added.
“All political parties desire fresh elections, he said, adding that one the one hand, there was back-breaking inflation, and, on the other, there taxes were being rained down on the people,” Fazlur Rehman said. Fazl said people’s mandate was stolen a year ago and rejected people were forced to rule public.
The JUI-F chaief also slammed the new requirement of presenting the national identity card (CNIC) for purchases worth more than Rs50,000. That, he said, was not a documented economy but a foreign agenda.
Earlier, JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rahman has announced a ‘million march’ in Peshawar on July 25.
Talking to the media on Saturday, he said that the JUI-F will hold a million march in Quetta on July 28. “The present government was formed as a result of rigging. Traders have also expressed no confidence in the government,” he said.
