ISLAMABAD, April 29 (Online): PDM chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman has said he has not accepted PPP and ANP resignations from PDM.
“ both of the major opposition parties are not ready to tender resignations. PPP and ANP resignations from PDM have not been accepted. The opposition parties suffered loss by not accepting my demand for not taking oath in assemblies. I am in favor of trade with India. It is matter of jubilation for us that our forces have tremendous potential to fight”, he said this in an informal talk with the media men here Thursday.
He held PPP is eager to return to PDM. The matter is being delayed as they are mulling over our condition. Time has been given to them on this count. The deliberation on their part over our condition is delaying this matter. Time has been given to them in this regard. It is matter of jubilation that the alliance persists. The summit meeting of alliance will be convened after Eid.
He went on to say that if PPP returns to PDM and accepts our stance then we can accept their opposition leader in Senate.
Awami National Party is also displeased with PPP for seeking votes from BAP, he claimed. Its leaders ship had to announce to leave PDM under some pressure. PDM doors are still open to PPP. We had sought explanation. If they give this explanation then matters will move forward. PML-N will be headed by Shahbaz Sharif in PDM.
He stated that a forceful mass contact movement will be launched after Eid.
Political stability is must in the country to revive national economy, he remarked. There is no option for in house change in the current parliament. With reference to electoral reforms Way can be paved for establishment of such a national government wherein opposition side is in dominating position.
He underscored that there is no moral justification for Imran Khan and President Arif Alvi for staying in their offices following the Supreme Court decision in Justice Qazi Faez Isa cae.
Our stance on Kashmir will be strengthened against India when we are stronger on economic front. Fragile economy creates difficulties for our foreign policy and defence.
Opposition parties suffered loss by not accepting my demand for not taking oath in assemblies. The matters would have been different if members of opposition parties would not have taken oath for some time, he added.
He observed that we are in favor of trade with India. But economic stability and political reconciliation is must before it. When national economy was robust in the past then Vajpayee had come to Pakistan by bus. At that time we had welcomed him too. Our stance is going to be diluted due to our fragile economy.
We all are standing on weak position, he underscored. We will have to charter a way for reconciliation to come out of this situation, he remarked.
Responding to a question he said it is matter of real happiness for us if our army has tremendous potential for fighting.
