JUI-F chief Fazl-ur-Rehman called on PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari at Bilawal House in Karachi on Friday.

At the meeting, which continued for one and a half hours, Fazl inquired after Zardari and discussed national political issues with the PPP top leadership. The leaders of the two key opposition political parties decided to work together on the political front for the sake of country’s integrity and survival. The two sides decided not to show flexibility on the NFC Award and 18th Amendment to the Constitution. They said they would not make a compromise on the “anti-people budget”, which the federal government presented last month for the next fiscal year.

Speaking on this occasion, former president Asif Ali Zardari said he had predicted that Imran Khan was not capable of running the government. He said the government did not take his warnings about the locust attacks seriously just because of its ego and stubbornness. He said that Pakistan could face a food crisis if urgent measures are not taken to stop locust attacks. He said that people are looking towards the opposition to rid the country of the “selected government”. He said that Prime Minister Imran Khan’s “incompetence” was exposed fully during the coronavirus crisis in the country. He said that Pakistan and Imran Khan can’t move forward together.

Talking to Fazl, Bilawal said that corruption touched new peaks in Imran Khan’s tenure. He said the prime minister was using the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to avenge the political leaders from the opposition political parties. He said that Imran Khan has not done a single public welfare project in two years. He said that all opposition political parties of the country are on one page against the “selected government”.

Fazl said he agrees to Bilawal and Zardari’s views on the aforementioned national political issues. He said the PTI government has destroyed the national economy. He said that Pakistani economy has never seen negative growth in the country’s history. He said that all political parties would have to join hands to rid the country of the “selected rulers”.
