Categorically rejecting the idea of any ‘intervention’ in the country’s politics by the ‘establishment’, Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) President and Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman on Saturday made it clear that in order to ensure the security of the country, the state institutions would have to remain in their limits, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
Talking to the media, he said that crises were created in the country only when institutions crossed their limits. “And sadly the same institutions come forward to end the crises which are their own creation,” he said, adding, “This practice must stop.”
Fazl was of the view that when Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan was the country’s prime minister, all state organs, including the judiciary and establishment, supported him unconditionally. “But ever since the parties, which are part of the PDM, and have now formed a coalition government after the departure of Imran Khan, the intervention has started in the parliamentary and administrative affairs,” PDM president alleged.
“Neither could we be pressured nor blackmailed,” he said, and made it clear that from now onwards all decisions would be taken by the parliament.
He also claimed that Imran had no political value and asked the government to start probing cases of corruption in the PTI government.
