Fazl urges people to come out on streets to oust government
Maulana Fazlur Rehman Saturday urged the people to come out on the streets to oust the incompetent government, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
Addressing a Pakistan Democratic Movement's (PDM) rally in Faisalabad's Dhobi Ghat ground, the PDM chief said the Opposition alliance aims to make Pakistan a peaceful country.
"The PDM will hold you (the government) accountable," he said, adding that the Opposition has challenged "dictators and their followers" before.
Fazl said that the people have to come out in the field in an organized manner and PDM will put an end to these rulers.
“Punjab is a big province and if it rises, the whole country will be encouraged,” Fazl added.
The JUI-F chief questioned the PTI-led government over its move to drop a "petrol bomb" on the nation, asking what the fault of the common man was that they had to do such a thing.
"Today, the survival of states depends on the economy," Fazl said, adding that an economic war has once again begun around the world.
The government has "destroyed" the economy of Pakistan, he said.
The PDM chief stated that the Parliament, which represents the people, has been rendered "unstable". "What role will the parliament play when the people of Pakistan are forced to commit suicide?" he asked.
Shedding light on Pakistan's foreign relations with other countries, he said that Pakistan has "infuriated China" while the US and Europe also did not help and Afghanistan cannot help.
"Iran is on India's side, and our neighbouring country (India) is threatening our very existence," he added.
Fazl asked: "You made a deal for Kashmir. How do you consider yourself a representative of the people?"
"How long will you (Imran Khan) do politics by calling everybody else a thief?"
“Prime Minister is doing politics on the basis of “thief” slogan. He said that PM called everyone a thief, but he should look at his own footsteps.
The PDM chief termed PM Imran Khan's promise to provide one million job a "foolish act."
Fazl said: “PM Khan talked about providing 10 million jobs to the public which is not less than stupidity. Instead giving the jobs, the government rather fired 3 million employees.”
