Fazl to lead anti-government protests in Karachi, Islamabad and Lahore

By

Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) leader Maulana Fazl ur Rehman has announced on Sunday that he will hold public meetings in Lahore, Karachi and Islamabad on a campaign against the government led by PTI.

The senior politician announced the news after a consultation meeting with the Lahore allies.

Fazir further stated that JUI-F and his allies will hold a public meeting in Karachi, Islamabad on February 23 and in Lahore from March 1 to March 19.

The announcement is in line with last month’s speech from the Secretary-General of JUI-F.

At a press conference on January 30, Maulana Abdul Ghafoor Haidri announced that his party would resume election campaigns against the federal government led by PTI.

The campaign will resume after Azadi’s defeat last March, carried out by JUI-F and other opposition parties.

At today’s press conference, Fazir said when the current government was fired that the government had “returned home” and added that there was no “government record”.

Fazir said the two sides discussed the formation of a constitutional and elected government today.

“We are on the first day,” said JUI-F leaders, details of the anti-government protests they are planning to launch.

The JUI-F leader claims that the country is going through an economic crisis due to failing government policy. “Inflation has robbed ordinary people of their right to life,” Fazir said.

He pointed out that gasoline and gasoline prices are rising at all levels.

“A poor man no longer has the option to buy vegetables and daily necessities,” said the senior politician.

He claimed that people were “forced to sell their children and commit suicide”.

JUI-F leaders did not mention any political party, but noted that the opposition has been split because of certain policies of the main political parties. He added that differences in opposition have benefited the government.

Asked about PML-N leader Maryam Nawaz’s request to leave the country to visit her father’s former prime minister, Nawaz Sharif, Fazir said it was not in a political case.

PML-N Chairman Shehbaz Sharif said earlier this week that due to the absence of Nawaz’s daughter Maryam, the schedule for Nawaz’s operation has been two times to change.
