Fazal says no backing down from already waged 'war' against govt 

Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazal JUI-F Chief Maulana Fazal-ur-Rehman Sunday said PDM has already announced a “war” against the government and backing out would be a great sin as rulers are afraid of PDM rallies, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

JUI-F Maulana Fazal ur Rehman said, “We respect Pakistan Army and other institutions.”

Criticising the country’s foreign policy of the incumbent government, JUI-F supremo alleged: “No country in the world is going side by side with Pakistan. In the direction of the US, the hefty investment of $70b of China has not been drowned. Saudi Arab and UAE gave you $2b on the basis of friendship but upon seeing the ruining of its money, the friendly countries have asked to return the money”

Fazal ur Rehman also alleged the incumbent government has left Kashmiris alone and sold out the emotion of the Kashmiris.

Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said the state has the responsibility to pay back benefits of resources to people of the land and erstwhile FATA.

“PPP always raised the voice of rights of erstwhile FATA while missing persons are also increasing. The selected government has brought historic unemployment and inflations and the common man is bearing the ineligible government. This government brings only sugar, flour, oil and now the gas crisis,” Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said.

He said Rs166 billion was not given to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa which is a due right of youth in Peshawar and province.

Bilawal also lambasted the PTI government for not perusing the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) route coming from Gilgit, Chitral, Dir towards the other areas of the province.

“This government is not a representative of KP but they are representatives of selectors,” PPP chairman alleged and also said, “KP’s crude oil production has contributed 50,000 barrels out of 90,000 barrels per day of overall capacity but the province has not been given its due royalty.”

PPP chairman also mocked the KP government flagship project BRT Peshawar whose buses often find “ditches” people in the middle of a journey.

“Corruption will never end until we keep on playing the good-corrupt and bad-corrupt. This government will have to go in January,” he added. Bilawal said people of Pakistan will decide what will be the foreign policy of the country.

Bilawal Bhutto added that GB people will participate in PDM march against the selected government, and raised slogans “meray vote pay daka na manzoor”.

PML-N vice President Maryam Nawaz Sharif addressing a charged crowd said she wanted to talk to them but her grandmother has passed away in London. 

“My grandmother's mother has passed away, I will not be able to talk to you today,” Maryam Nawaz's voice trembled while sharing this sad news to the gathering.

Awami National Party (ANP) Amir Haider Khan Hoti said there must be free and fair elections in a country where only supremacy of people will prevail. “We will not tolerate the corrupt government and will defend the 18th amendment.”

ANP Mian Iftikhar Hussain said this so-called government is ineligible and there is no reason to change 18th amendment and development funds must be released as soon as possible.

PML-N Khyber Pakhtunkhwa President Amir Muqaam criticised the PTI government stance to stop rallies amid the COVID-19 spread fear. He said the government itself is doing public rallies then what is the point to stop the PDM rallies.
