PM Imran scared of Opposition’s anti-govt drive: JUI-F chief

LAHORE: Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman has asserted that Prime Minister Imran Khan was scared of the Opposition’s anti-government movement.

In response to a question about PM Imran’s statement that the government had nothing to fear from the 11-party alliance, he said that the prime minister was scared.

“The Prime Minister is sweating profusely. You have no idea,” he said while talking to journalists in Lahore today (Wednesday). The JUI-F chief was flanked by party leaders.

Maulana Fazl also warned the incumbent government that the Pakistan Democratic Movement’s (PDM) plan includes going to Islamabad as well. “First couple of rallies held by the PDM will create emotions and effects of change in Pakistan,” he added.

“The people of Pakistan are waiting for the success of the PDM rallies,” he added. However, he did not specify whether the opposition intended to stage protests in the capital or a dharna like the Azadi March.

Referring to the absence of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and former President Asif Ali Zardari in PDM rallies, he said, “We have a message for the leadership of both parties. We will not let the absence of your leaders be felt.”

He further said that the perception that there will be a clash among state institutions was wrong. “We should ask ourselves with a cool mind, how do we take the country forward?” he asked.

Commenting on the PDM’s upcoming rally in Gujranwala on October 16, he said that the alliance will ensure all efforts to make it a successful power show. The JUI-F chief also urged the masses to turn up at the protests in huge numbers.

“The current government cannot be referred to as a government that is representative of the people. We support the demands of the protesting government employees in Islamabad,” he concluded.
