State institutions ‘interfering’ in politics since 2018, alleges Fazl

Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman said Monday that the state institutions were interfering country’s politics since 2018, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Addressing a press conference in Peshawar, he said the long march had no significance without giving resignations from the assemblies en masse.  

He further said it was strange that the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had sought cancellation of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz’s bail. “Has NAB become the spokesperson of state institutions?” JUI-F chief questioned.  

He said actually NAB’s job was to stop corruption and not to indulge in political victimization.

Fazl alleged that legally valid votes were rejected during the election for the seat of Senate chairman a few days ago.  

He said a strategy would be chalked out about the long march at Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) senior leaders’ meeting to be held tomorrow (Tuesday).  

He said he was not ready to accept that the senators had ‘changed’ their loyalties in the recently held Senate elections without pressure from the establishment.
