Doors of PDM open for PPP, says Maulana Fazl

ISLAMABAD: Jamat-e-Ulema Islam (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazl ur Rehman has asserted that Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) wants to rejoin the alliance, adding that the doors of the alliance are open for the party.

“PPP wants to return to the alliance, but it is being delayed due to deliberation on the condition put forward by us,” said the PDM chief while talking to the media in Islamabad on Thursday.

He also assured the disgruntled parties that there were no roadblocks for both parties to return to the alliance. “If the PPP accepts their stance then they will be ready to accept Yousuf Raza Gillani as the Leader of the Opposition in the Senate,” he added.

Maulana Fazl claimed, “ANP was also unhappy with the PPP over their decision to seek the votes of Balochistan Awami Party’s senator to elect Gilani in the Senate.”

“The ANP leadership had to announce its separation from the alliance due to some pressure,” alleged Fazl. He assured everyone that the alliance was intact and a meeting will be called after Eid, adding that PML-N President Shahbaz Sharif will lead his party’s delegation.

The PDM chief stated that to free the country’s economy, there was a need to bring in political stability. He also dismissed talks about bringing in an in-house change in the Parliament.
