Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Shibli Faraz said on Monday that Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) Chairman Fazl-ur-Rehman was nothing more than a 12th man in the cricket game and he was called to political gatherings just for speeches.
Responding to PDM leaders’ speeches against the government at the Qasim Bagh public gathering in Multan, Shibli said that those behind PPP founder Zulfikar Ali Bhutt’s hanging were sitting on the stage on PPP’s foundation day and this must have caused pain to Bhutto’s soul.
Referring to Fazl’s remarks that the PDM would march on Islamabad, Shibli, who is also a member of the Senate of Pakistan, said Fazl was rejected by the people of Dera Ismail Khan and now he was talking about marching on Islamabad. He said this was the same Fazl who had marched on Islamabad last year as well.
Shibli thanked the people of Multan. He said that a fire broke out inside a building adjacent to the venue of the PDM meeting where opposition leaders were delivering speeches, but they continued without a break. He said that Maryam Nawaz and his father Nawaz Sharif were speaking the same language.
