Fazl tells 'those with fake mandate' to stop threatening opposition


Jamiat-Ulema-Islam-F chief Fazlur Rehman on Thursday advised Prime Minister Imran Khan to refrain from threatening him, calling his mandate to rule “fake”.

The government who got a stolen mandate should not make threats to the opposition, he said.

“Who has asked for NRO,” Fazl asked, in reply to PM Imran’s statements in his Wednesday address vowing not to give criminals any deal.

Commenting on the efforts to unite opposition against the government, Fazl said that 75% of the work has been done and the opposition would unite to play a role in the parliament.

He said that Pakistan Muslim League-N supremo Nawaz Sharif has asked for three days before an all parties conference.

Fazl and PPP co-chairman Asif Zardari have met more than once in the past few days in an effort to unite opposition and call an APC.

Zardari said Monday he was up for uniting the opposition parties against the government, saying the country does not seem to be running this way.

The JUI-F chief on the occasion said that they will contact opposition to formulate a joint strategy and an all-parties conference would be summoned next week.
