Govt winding up in a month: Fazl

National

December 14, 2019

MULTAN: Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl Chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman has said the Azadi march has broken stagnation in politics and shattered the impact that no one can disturb the government at any level.

Talking to journalists here at the Qasimul Uloom on Friday, he said there was an impression that the domestic and international establishment was backing the government but the JUI-F’s Azadi march shook the government. The nation and opposition have the only demand that the PTI government, which was formed as a result of rigged elections, should resign.

There is no solution to present crisis except removal of the government and electoral reforms, he said, adding that the government claims economy is strengthening, but it is speaking lies. The government has cut jobs in various departments including the PIA and recovered money from downsized departments to show deficit as profit, which is a great fraud, he said.

When asked about the achievements of the Azadi march, he said soon the government will be no more. When he was asked about time frame, he said: "The countdown has begun for the removal of the bogus government. No long time is needed, the government is winding up in a month." The small benefits of the Azadi march include release of Asif Ali Zardari and allowing Nawaz Sharif for medical treatment abroad.

He said they do not want someone to raise fingers towards the most stabilized institution of army. There is no controversy over enacting laws and bringing amendments to the Army Act. The JUI-F chief demanded that the proposed amendments to the Army Act should be postponed until the election of a new assembly. He said the government has no validation. If it brings amendments to the Army Act, it would have no validation. The amendments will remain highly controversial in the constitutional history of Pakistan.

Responding to a query, he said Nawaz Sharif and Asif Ali Zardari are facing tough time because they refused betraying the China Pakistan Economic Corridor.

The balance of power across the world is going to change and the CPEC would strengthen the economy in Asia and the Middle East, which is a threat to the United States. "The work on the CPEC has been suspended for the last one year since the arrival of the PTI government," Fazl said, adding that the government has surrendered the Kashmir cause and is just playing politics.
