PTI March on Islamabad has no significance: JUI(F) Chief


Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman said here on Sunday that Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf’s march towards Islamabad had no significance and people would not support agitation.

Responding to a question at a function, Maulana Rehman, who also heads Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), a multi-party alliance of the coalition partners in the centre, said that media had created hype about the so-called march.

“They will come to Islamabad only for wasting time and I request media not to give importance to the march,” he replied when asked about the PTI’s “Azadi March” on Islamabad. He was confident that PTI did not break record of the JUI-F march held in October 2019.

The JUI-F chief aid that the coalition government would complete its constitutional tenure.

He said that former prime minister Imran Khan had been staying at “Kor” (house) in Peshawar for the last few days. Imran had been reportedly staying at the Chief Minister’s House.

Replying to another question, Maulana Rehman said that the country had practically turned bankrupted because of the economic and political policies of the previous ‘incompetent’ government.

He said that mess created during the last four years could not be removed within one month.

The future government would bear consequences of the previous government, he added.

Mr Rehman appealed people to support policies of the coalition government. He said that political parties and institutions should be on the same page to pull the country out of economic, political and social crises at that critical juncture.
