JUI-F chief, Nawaz Sharif discuss political situation
The opposition should join hands to terminate the government, says JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman.
He called on PML-N founder Nawaz Sharif at the latter’s residence in Jati Umrah on Tuesday. He is expected to meet former president Asif Ali Zardari the following day.
“We, the leaders of the opposition, will have to make tough decisions against NAB,” he said, adding that it is the need of the hour to take such decisions against the anti-graft watchdog.
“Justice and accountability can’t be expected from NAB,” said Rehman.
His meeting with the PML-N supremo continued for one-and-a-half hour. The two leaders discussed NAB’s actions among other issues relating to the political and economic situation in the country. “Everyone is concerned about the price hike and deteriorating economic situation in the country,” he said.
All the parties are unanimous on the point that the incumbent government has a fake mandate, he said. “We have discussed ridding the masses of the increasing burden of the hike in prices,” he said.
