HYDERABAD: Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUIF) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman said on Saturday no proposal to form a grand alliance against the government was currently under consideration.

He was talking to journalists in Thatta after condoling the death of well-known scholar Mufti Ibrahim Memon with his son. On this occasion, Maulana Arshad Mahmood Soomro and others were also present.

Rehman said they had started a regular movement against the government created on the basis of Form 47. After Karachi, he said, a million-man march would be held in Peshawar on May 9, after which announcements would be made for other cities as well.

Regarding PTI founder Imran Khan, Fazl said Khan has two sides: one is that he is caught in cases against him, about which the courts as well as and his lawyers know, and the other side is political. He said it would not be in good taste if he criticised his opponent, who was in jail but still making statements about him.

The JUI-F leader said government delegations were negotiating with the PTI, and his party would facilitate purposeful negotiations, as the political environment must be improved for the development of the country.

On a question regarding the performance of the government, he asked if and where the government had started talking about its performance.
