Dharna called off as goal achieved, claims Maulana Fazlur Rehman

BANNU: The Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief, Maulana Fazlur Rehman, said on Tuesday that the days of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government were numbered, saying that his party succeeded in mobilising the people to send this government packing.

Addressing the participants of the sit-in on the Indus Highway here, he said, "We went to Islamabad for a purpose and did not return without achieving it. Your roots have been cut. Now count your days." MNA Zahid Akram KhanDurrani, Engr Malik Ihsan Khan, Malik Taj Muhammad Khan, Malik Kashif Khan, Malik Musharraf Khan Alamgir and others also spoke on the occasion.

Fazlur Rehman said the abusive language being used by the prime minister against the opposition parties clearly shows his frustration. He said the prime minister should also compare his father's historical background with that of his father (Maulana Mufti Mahmood).

"We are still in the field. We are not the ones who hide behind institutions," Maulana said, adding, the people would go to polls once again as the selected rulers had miserably failed to deliver on pledges and provide any relief to the masses.

Admitting that the roadblocks caused inconvenience to the commoners, he said he was striving for the rights of the people as their mandate had been stolen. The JUI-F chief said that the rulers were working under a foreign agenda to damage the country by crippling its economy. The prime minister talked about not giving NRO (amnesty) to anyone, but he actually gave it to her sister, the JUI-F leader alleged.

"The income from the sewing machine has reached Rs70 billion," he remarked, adding, “We must also be given such sewing machines.” He said that even the founding members of the party lodged a case against the PTI leadership, accusing them of accepting funds from abroad, but the case had been pending for the last five years.
