Not in a position to give any surprise, says Fazl
Former president Asif Ali Zardari has threatened to topple the PTI government and said that they will raise their voice against the government.
“Kaptaan will have to go home,” Zardari said after a meeting with Maulana Fazlur Rehman in Islamabad Wednesday.
“Maulana Fazlur Rehman and I have a similar political ideology,” the former president said. Rehman, the chief of his own faction of the JUI, said they will have to get rid of the “fake rulers”.
However, the Rehman said that he was invited to dinner by Zardari and it was just a routine meeting. “We are not in a position to give any surprises,” the JUI-F chief said.
Fazl is on a self-started mission to rally support to form an alliance against the PTI-led government.
On Tuesday, he underscored the need for the opposition to join hands to overthrow the government. “All the parties are unanimous on the point that the incumbent government has a fake mandate,” he told the media after meeting former premier Nawaz Sharif at his residence in Jati Umrah.
“Everyone is concerned about the price hike and deteriorating economic situation in the country,” he said. During my meeting with Nawaz, we discussed ridding the masses of the increasing burden of the hike in prices, he said.
We, the leaders of the opposition, will have to make tough decisions against NAB, he said. The opposition parties need to make tough decisions against the anti-graft watchdog, he said.
Justice and accountability can’t be expected from NAB, said Rehman.
